for 2 unforgettable weeks

Ta’amu 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.

Ta’amu 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.

Ta’amu is an incredible opportunity:

Thanks to the generous support of multiple partners, Ta’amu participants pay a single highly subsidized fee ($500 for the 2018-19 program) for housing, tuition, some meals, trips, one Shabbaton, and airfare (up to $1300**).

**Reimbursement rates differ depending on the origin of the flight.
