    The program is designed for women who want to get back to the basics and build their own foundations in Jewish learning. Ignite is about professional, personal and spiritual development through inspiring classes to find questions and answers about Jewish practice, philosophy and spirituality. We encourage group bonding, fun, and friendships. The women become part of our family, and have the chance to ask questions and do self-work through workshops on topics such as integrating Jewish growth to family life and how to grow through ‘baby steps’. Our students come out inspired and developed in all realms.

    Important Information: This program is for women only.

    Dates: May 23 – July 17, 2022 OR June 8-August 2, 2022

    Program Cost: $399 + Airfare

    Cost includes a modest food stipend or provided meals, lodging, insurance, local transportation and program costs.

    Participants are responsible for arranging their own flights.

    Participants will be required to submit a $200 participation and security deposit in cash upon arrival in Israel, refunded at the end if no apartment damage or missing of days of the program.

    The actual cost of the Onward Israel program is much higher, and is subsidized up to 70% by Onward Israel, private donors, and local Jewish communities and institutions.

    Accommodations: Ignite is based in Jerusalem. You will be living in apartments in a lovely, central neighborhood called Nachlaot. Each apartment has multiple bedrooms, bathrooms and kitchen facilities.

    The number of participants to an apartment or room is dependent on the size of the accommodations and number of participants on the program.  While meeting common standards, Onward Israel housing differs by program and even within a program. To learn more about this and other Onward Israel housing details, please visit our housing FAQ.

    Acceptance Criteria: Ideally for female students who have had one previous short-term Israel experience – such as Birthright Israel or a teen travel program.

    Masa-eligible participants in programs which are part of the Onward/Masa partnership may qualify for additional scholarships. For more information, call Onward Israel or your local partner professional.

    Participants on Onward Israel programs that are run in partnership with Masa may return to Israel on long-term Masa programs after Onward Israel. They may also be eligible for additional scholarships from Masa to help fund their participation, although the size of that scholarship may be influenced by prior participation on Onward Israel. For details please contact Masa Israel Journey directly.
