As both religion and art embrace life in all its manifold experiences,
so must our program reach beyond the classroom.
We have created for you a rich informal program which will complement your formal studies.
Your Teacher's Table
The personal attention and relationships you develop with your teachers will transform a stimulating education into a life-changing year. Your teachers will open their homes to you so that you can enjoy the warmth and caring of a home environment even when you are far from home.
Shabbatot and Chaggim
Living a year in Israel means celebrating the Jewish calendar in rhythm with the seasons and in harmony with the nation. These holidays will be peak moments in your year. As a community, Emunah v’Omanut will prepare for and celebrate many of these Chaggim together. We will work to ensure you experience them in the most inspiring environment possible.
You will have opportunities for exciting tiyulim and Shabbatonim which bring alive the Tanach and offer a window into Israel’s living history, natural beauty and tapestry of Jewish cultures. You will enjoy extended trips in the Golan, Galil and the Negev. With Tanach in hand, you will walk the paths of our forefathers and understand these narratives with a relevance and clarity only available by learning in Eretz Yisrael. Israel’s breathtaking vistas will call forth an artistic response. With camera, easel and sketchbook always close, you will create your impression of these awe inspiring sights. Opportunities for Torah and art education in Israel are endless. You will learn from field trips to archaeological digs, museums, historical reconstructions and ancient synagogues.
Throughout the year, you will participate in different seminars designed to address topics beyond the course curriculum. Here, you will hear speakers elucidating current events in Israel or issues of Torah and Ethics. Near the end of the year you will discuss the myriad issues bound up with returning home after a year in Midrasha. These include dealing with the challenges of campus life, Israel advocacy, Jewish leadership and incorporating the experiences of a year in Israel into the rest of your life.
Utilizing Emunah’s extensive network of institutions, you will find meaningful ways to help Israelis from all walks of life. You might use your artistic talents to help a youngster with school, brighten up an elderly person’s day, or together with friends create a Purim fair in an underprivileged neighborhood. Extending ourselves to help others is a value we wish to emulate. But in truth it is also a wonderful opportunity to grow, learn, and experience the reality of Israe
