MITF-Israel Experience Cities:
Located on the Mediterranean Sea, just south of Tel Aviv, Bat Yam has clean beaches, bars and restaurants, cultural centers, and more. With multiple forms of public transportation operating to and from Yafo and Tel Aviv, Bat Yam is an oasis of peace and quiet outside of the hustle and bustle of the big city.
Classroom sizes in Bat Yam range from 20-30 students. Masa Israel Teaching Fellows might be working in elementary schools, middle schools, or high schools depending on the needs of the school district.
Haifa serves as Israel’s 3rd largest city. It is one of its most beautiful and multicultural cities, filled with gorgeous beaches, scenic views from Mount Carmel, and forests perfect for hiking. The people of Haifa are from diverse religions, cultures, and ethnicities. Jews and Arabs live side by side, and sites of religious worship of the main religions can be found there as well!
Serving as the 4th largest city in Israel, Rishon holds thriving metropolitan centers, parks, cultural areas and an active nightlife. From its establishment in the late 1800’s, until now, the city has rapidly grown, and developed in urban lifestyle while still maintaining a strong sense of community.
Schools were built in the middle of the city neighborhoods in order to serve as centers of community life. All schools adhere to the principle of educational equality. The extremely varied socioeconomic statuses and cultures Rishon holds make for a truly unique experience.
