The Conservative Yeshiva Summer Hebrew Ulpan, in Jerusalem, Israel, is an opportunity to study Hebrew intensively for a short period of time in a small, congenial class as part of the popular Conservative Yeshiva Summer Program for college and post-college students from around the world. The top-notch Hebrew Ulpan teachers, motivated fellow students, and location in the center of Jerusalem, combine to make this a premier Hebrew language experience.
Five levels of modern Hebrew study are offered, including reading, writing, speaking, grammar, and Israeli culture.
The Conservative Yeshiva Volunteer & Study Program provides the opportunity to be part of a diverse learning community as well as integrate into the Jerusalem community by volunteering with an Israeli non-profit organization.
This presents participants with an opportunity to improve your knowledge as well as contribute your skills and expertise to help others and make a real difference. Learn about the Jewish traditions of Tikun Olam (Repairing the World) and Gemilut Chasidim (Acts of Loving Kindness) and apply the traditions through meaningful volunteering.
For the first time in the history of our species, the contours of a global order based on justice and human security has come into view.

The Human Rights track of the Conservative Yeshiva Summer Program's Volunteer & Study option is your opportunity to help achieve this goal while deepening your roots in Judaism and the heart of Israel.
