    You will intern for 4 or 5 days a week and enjoy touring days and activities together as a group throughout the summer. During our programme, you will get to experience a weekend shabbaton to the Galil, UJIA’s partnership region. During this weekend participants will see communities on the periphery of Israeli society.

    You will also be given the option to take part in leadership training seminars run by some of the best leaders Israel has to offer.

    During the programme, one of the things that past participants enjoy the most is meeting and building relationships with like-minded people from around the world whilst also exploring Tel Aviv’s exciting nightlife, food, culture and great people.

    Interning through UJIA Onward Israel will give you the leadership skills and relevant experience to gain an advantage on the competition. This is important when building your career in the saturated UK job market.

    Above all you will have the most memorable summer on this unique 8-week programme.

    This Onward Israel program is operated through a partnership between UJIA (United Jewish Israel Appeal) and Masa Israel Journey. It is organized by Sachlav.

    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.
