Israel Engagement Program

Tired of Being a Tourist?

Have you been to Israel before and hunger for a deeper experience?

Are you eager to use your English skills to empower young people?

Do you want to develop your experience in Jewish-Christian relations?

 

The Philos Project and the Israel Center for Jewish-Christian Relations invite you to join us for a unique Jewish-Christian program in Israel, directed by Philos Associate Fellow Dr. Faydra Shapiro.

The Israel Engagement Program is a unique opportunity that brings English-speaking, Christian young adults (ages 20+) to Israel as teaching fellows for a three month (one-semester) organized program of community service, study and touring. The community service component utilizes the ability that teaching fellows all possess – native English conversation ability – and mobilizes that ability to enrich the English-learning curriculum for students at Jewish and Arab Christian schools. The program’s study component will be focused on learning about Jewish-Christian relations and contemporary Israeli society, with teaching provided by academics and activists with advanced degrees and experience in the field. Touring will be with licensed guides to local archaeological, religious and historical sites. The program also offers the fellows local guest speakers, Hebrew language learning and a Shabbat experience.

Application Deadline: September 1, 2017

Cost: $900 per semester (limited scholarship support available)
