    Join an impressive group of fellow Rutgers students this summer in Israel! Enhance your resume with international work experience while strengthening your connection to Israel, RJX style! RJX (the Rutgers Jewish eXperience) is proud to represent MEOR at Rutgers University since 2004 by providing learning programs, international trips to places like Israel and Poland, and Shabbat experiences. RJX and Onward Israel jInternship will partner to catalyze the humbling Jewish power within you through this unique internship experience in Israel.

    This program is for students from Rutgers University.

    Dates: May 23 – July 17 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: The Rutgers program 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: Open to students attending Rutgers University, with preference given to underclassmen. Ideally for 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.
