Nativ College Leadership Program

Nativ College Leadership Program


If you are a North American student with Jewish heritage, the Nativ College Leadership Program in Israel, affiliated with the United Synagogue of Conservative Judaism, allows you to earn college credits while exploring your path (Nativ) to becoming a Jewish adult.

Over the course of the autumn semester, you’ll take intensive courses on Israel, Judaism, and the Hebrew language taught by renowned teachers at Hebrew University’s Rothberg International School. Make friends with other international and Israeli students as you deepen your connection with Judaism and Jewish life. Learn more about the Nativ program.


During the first six weeks of the Nativ program, you’ll take special courses that provide a foundation of knowledge about Israel and Judaism. During the regular autumn semester, you’ll continue to take courses in Jewish, Israel, Middle East, and behavioral studies, and enroll in Modern Hebrew.
