The Rimon Fellows program invites Jewish Orthodox college students to study abroad at the Rothberg International School at Hebrew University, providing the opportunity to spend a semester in Jerusalem while connecting to Israel, Jewish learning, and community.
The program caters both to students who have previously participated in a gap year in Israel and those who have not. Coming back for a semester of university studies as a young college adult will be a whole new way to experience Israel.
In addition to the coursework, Rimon Fellows will facilitate a vibrant community with like-minded friends, connecting or reconnecting to Yeshiva/Midrasha, and experiences to help understand what it means to live in Israel as a young adult.
The following program opportunities are available to Rimon Fellows: mentorship, beit midrash program, meeting with industry leaders, Rimon dinners, Israeli community exploration, networking events, Shabbatons, connection with Yeshivot/Midrashot, chavruta placement, and VIP events and trips around the country and more!
