    Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have unfortunately chosen to cancel this Onward Israel program for summer 2020. To receive information for the summer 2021 season, please visit www.onwardisrael.org/prereg.

    Onward Israel Nevada helps young adults start up their professional and Jewish futures through immersive, resume-building internships and educational travel in Israel. Through the program, participants will connect with Israel and the Nevada Jewish community in unique, fun and meaningful ways while acquiring real-world, professional experience.


    Interns can build their resumes through personalized, high-level internships in the field of their choice. Join other young adults from Nevada during an 8-week immersive experience living, working and traveling in modern day Israel.

    As a part of the Nevada Onward Israel Theme Based Experience, Nevadans on Theme-Based programs this summer will be given opportunities to come together for educational and networking events before, during and after their trip.

    An unforgettable Israel experience and an unforgettable resume, too. Develop your professional future in Israel this summer and build your resume through an internship based on your skills, interests and future plans. Intern four days a week, and immerse yourself in Israeli society one day a week with a cohort of other Jewish Nevadans.

    The Nevada Onward Israel Experience occurs between June and August 2019. Dates vary depending which Theme-Based Program the applicant participates in.

    Program fees for Theme-based programs range in price from $300-700
    *Included: Lodging, modest stipend for food, insurance, transportation and program costs. Participants are responsible for arranging their own flights to and from Israel.
    **Participants will be required to submit a $250 refundable security deposit.

    Participants in the Nevada Onward Israel Experience will be eligible to receive a $100 scholarship, which will be reimbursed to them after the summer. The scholarship is contingent upon full participation in all components of a participant’s Theme-Based program, as well as all events scheduled for Nevada participants, and need to attend 1 event at Hillel before the program starts and then attend 3 Hillel events the following fall and 3 in the following spring.
