The Year Course Community
Originally founded as the gap year program for members of the Young Judaea movement, Year Course participants now span a broad range of denominations, youth movements, summer camps, educational backgrounds, and affiliations. The group's diversity helps foster a dedicated and engaged community
of participants with a shared commitment to Year Course values.
While most participants continue directly to college in their home country after Year Course ends, many alumni have eventually chosen to put down their roots in Israel - whether by enrolling in Israeli universities, choosing to serve and enlisting in the IDF, or making Aliyah and calling Israel home.
