Taamu U’r’u – Taste & See

The Conservative Yeshiva offers college-age students from North America a chance to experience yeshiva life in Jerusalem first-hand via a highly subsidized 2-week program of immersive Torah study.

Taamu is right for:

  • Those looking to connect more deeply to Judaism and be more empowered Jews.
  • Those seeking peers who are passionate about Torah and Jewish practice and who share a commitment to openness, egalitarianism, inclusion, and social justice.
  • Those who want to infuse Jewish life on their campuses with more spirit and authentic, sophisticated content.

The program includes housing, meals, trips, full-day learning, and two Shabbat seminars.
