Powerful ideas for thinking Jews

Spend 3-6 Weeks ‘You Time’ In Israel


For females… If you are post Matric there are 2 programmes that you may be intereseted to look into:

>> JEWEL –

Jewel is a 3 week women’s programme that provides young ladies (you) the oportunity to engage with world reknownd personalities, explore your heritage, ask your questions, see some of Israel (but the main emphasis isn’t touring) and generally have amazing, meaningful, bonding and perhaps even enlightening experiences in a warm, open and accepting environment.

The next programmes for 2019 are:

  • June 2 – June 25     
  • June 30 – July 22        

For young professionals (from age 24): 

  • July 7 – 18

>> Mechina –

Mechina is simlar in some ways to JEWEL, but is a 6 week program. It is one of the programmes that are run by Neve Yerushalayim, a women’s educational oasis that has many levels and many areas of study.

The Mechina programme is run throughout the year so whatever your schedule, it will most likely be available to you. The starting and ending dates for each programme are available from the above website.

Feel free to check out the websites for both of these 2 places. Also, if you want to talk more about the potential of going to JEWEL or Mechina, or find out more about them, please feel free to email me:

For males… If you are male or female and post Matric, there is a great programme that it is worth looking into:

>> Essentials –

Essentials is Aish HaTorah’s introductory program to Judaism. It’s for young men aged 18-29 and presents the foundations to any spiritual quest. The classes are taught on topics ranging from “Practical Spirituality” with Rabbi Yom Tov Glaser (the famous surfing Rabbi) to how the book of Genesis fits in with the Big Bang from MIT Ph.D. Dr. Gerald Shroeder. The programme is taught in the beautiful new Aish building in the old city of Jerusalem facing the Western wall.

If you want to talk more about the potential of going to Essentials, or you want to find out more about them, please feel free to email me:
