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.

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, some meals, trips, full-day learning, and one Shabbaton.

The Ta’amu 5779 Program is still being developed, but to get a sense of the program’s offerings and intensity, you can see last year’s schedule here.

Note – this year’s program will not have the Pre-Ta’amu days, and will have only a single Jerusalem-based Shabbaton.


Taamu is for college-age North Americans.

Preference will be given to Juniors and Seniors.

Participants are selected in order to create a diverse cohort that contains both those who seek Jewish text study wherever they can find it and those for whom the experience will be completely new.
