    Our programs in partnership with Jinternship combine living and interning in Israel with Jewish learning. This is the ideal environment for gaining critical skills in three central areas of life: social, professional, and spiritual life. https://onwardisrael.org/wp-content/uploads/2017/08/jinternshipsmall.jpg

    Theme Based Programs

    For North American applicants who do not live or study in an Onward Israel partner community, Theme Based programs offer unique internship opportunities to young adults aged 19-27 from around the globe. Each program places participants in cohorts with other like-minded individuals which creates a completely unique opportunity to network and engage with peers in different sectors of a career field. Work and live in Israel while exploring what makes Israel a global influence in the field of your interest. https://onwardisrael.org/wp-content/uploads/2017/08/TBsmall.jpg
