About the Provider:
Ramah Israel operates a wide range of programming for Jews of all ages to explore Israel and the Jewish world. We approach Israel as a dynamic arena in which various expressions of Judaism and other religions and cultures coexist with one another. We engage those discovering the country with us in both intellectual and experiential exploration of the Jewish tradition against the backdrop of a nuanced state. We encourage and foster the development of one’s Jewishness and an individually meaningful relationship with Israel and her people. As a Masa Israel Teaching Fellow with Ramah, you will make Jerusalem your home and it’s citizens your neighbors. You will have the opportunity to experience and explore the richness of the country through a pluralistic lens and work side by side with Israeli peers building lifelong friendships and connections.
