In Jerusalem, participants live on the beautiful Beit Ar El Campus in the hip Jerusalem neighborhood of Baka. Year Course offers classes based on a core curriculum of Hebrew, Zionist History, and Jewish Identity taught in a format that combines formal and informal learning and utilizes siyurim (tours) to surrounding historical, religious, and cultural sites as the basis of education. Please see a list of our syllabi on our academics page. In addition to academics and siyurm, participants are connected with host families for Shabbatot and holidays and provided with opportunities to explore Jerusalem and the rest of the country to discover their own Israel.
