Where You’ll Live
Living with roommates will be a new experience for many Year Course chanichim (participants). This will help each student develop life skills that will serve him/her well in Israel and in life.
There is no city in the world like Jerusalem, the historical heart of the Jewish people for centuries.
In Jerusalem, participants live in apartment-like suites at Beit Ar-El, Young Judaea’s campus in the quiet, leafy Baka neighborhood. These apartments come with fully furnished bedrooms, kitchen, sitting and eating areas. Beit Ar-El is also the central spot for all Jerusalem activities and classes, creating a college-campus feeling. The campus has it’s own gym and laundry facilities.
Tel Aviv – Yafo
Israel’s cultural capital, Tel Aviv-Yafo is the heartbeat of modern Israel, home to hi-tech, music and theater, incredible food, beautiful beaches, and some of the most important sites in modern Israeli history.
In Tel Aviv-Yafo, most of our students and participants live together under one roof in a co-op style dorm living arrangement. The center, located in the city’s central Montefiore neighborhood, includes common areas for socializing and educational activities, and a large space for guest lectures. There are fully-equipped communal kitchens on each floor, a rooftop garden to hang out and relax, and a laundry room. In addition to the dorm building, there are two fully furnished off campus apartments just a short walk away.
