Essential Wisdom for Your Daily Life:
From the nature of G’d in Judaism to the nature of suffering in the world, plus a healthy dose of Kabbalistic contribution, we are here to help you gain the wisdom you need in a non-judgmental environment.
"The environment was inspiring...
the method of learning was inviting and engaging, and the lessons I learnt will be with me for life. - Aron S.
Don't Get Lost in the Crowd...
While the schedule is full of immersive experiences, most students take advantage of personalized one-on-one learning with our team of expert educators, catered around their specific questions. So, if it suits you, skip class and go to the library for some private question and answer sessions with a rabbi of your choosing.
What's Included in the Program?
Daytime Class Schedule
We accommodate your priorities while in Jerusalem and Israel, and we understand that there are other places you will want to visit during your stay. While we make sure your days are spiritually rewarding, you have your evenings free for those personal priorities. You can decide what most appeals to you with all of Aish and Jerusalem in which to adventure.
We arrange clean and simple shared accommodations for the duration of your program. As students, you will stay in a combination of dormitory-style living and authentic rentals, perfect for young people coming out of university. We strive to make your trip more than just time in the classroom, and we work to give you a fully immersive dive into authentic Jerusalem.
We will organize outings for you and your fellow students to explore Jerusalem and immerse in its culture. You will also have plenty of free time to enjoy the city's best spots, be it an afternoon in the Mahane Yehuda market or a night on Ben Yehuda street. Your time in Jerusalem could never be complete without seeing the city.
Direct Access to educators
Like in a university environment, we know that some of the best learning happens one on one and outside the classroom. Our teachers are here to help you navigate your studies and ask the questions that have arisen to you personally. It cannot be overstated how gratifying it is to have some of the world's greatest Jewish teachers available to answer your every question.
