You’ll have a year of learning Torah in some of the best learning centres that Israel has to offer. During the times when you are not at
Yeshiva or Midrasha, we’ll provide a varied schedule of activities letting you really live and feel the pulse of the Land of Israel.Various volunteer options, together with semi
nars about current Jewish and Israeli issues, will complement the educational goals of MTA. You’ll be more independent than you’ve ever been in your life, yet you can relax in the knowledge that your needs are being looked after.
MTA participants have the special opportunity to visit Poland as part of their year on Hachshara. Starting and ending in Israel, the trip focuses on the experiences of Polish Jewry throughout its history.
As well as various trips you’ll take with your Yeshiva or Midrasha, you’ll get to see the length and breadth of Israel with Bnei Akiva. On the Northern Tiyul we’ll show you some of the most beautiful views in the country, and while you’re stretching your legs, you’ll also expand your educational horizons, learning about the land of our forefathers. Later in the year, our Eilat Tiyul will give you the opportunity to enjoy water sports, hike the land, and see how Ben Gurion’s dream of making the desert bloom is coming true.
For two weeks before Pesach, you’ll have an inside perspective on an alternative Israeli lifestyle. Working alongside kibbutz members, preparing for Pesach, you may share duties in the factories, kitchen, dining hall or childcare facilities.
MTA is not a ‘year off’ but is a serious ‘year on’. It is also going to be the most action-packed and fun year of your life!
