    The Onward Israel Career Passport experience offers a unique experience for digital nomads and for those who are now working remotely. Bring your work with you from home and live in Tel Aviv. Immerse yourself in contemporary Israeli society. Experience Israel through Onward Israel’s exclusive day trips, volunteer opportunities, overnights and seminars. In your free time, explore Israel’s amazing restaurants, beaches, and nightlife with a cohort of other young adults. 

    Work days will be largely devoted to people’s individual work from home taking into account differing hours and time zones between Israel and North American addresses.

    If health and safety conditions in Israel do not allow for the program to take place not, the program will be cancelled. The decision will be made by approximately two months before the program begins. Please note, if this happens, paid participants will receive a full refund for their program fee.

    This Onward Israel program  is operated through a partnership between the Beacon and Shapira Foundations, Moishe House, OneTable and other leading philanthropists.
