When you live somewhere, you get a much better understanding of the culture and society than if you were just to visit. Being blessed with the opportunity to live abroad in Israel for the year has highlighted the beauty of a country of one people, a family. After meeting people from all walks of life and truly experiencing the land and her culture, I came to recognize the unique qualities of Israel.
Listen as my friends and madrichim from around the world on my World Bnei Akiva program called Kivun share personal anecdotes about unique experiences they have had while in Israel.

Kivun is a Co-ed, experiential, 9-month Israel immersion program for the Northern Hemisphere, focusing on personal development, independent living and Jewish growth. Participants live in apartments in Jerusalem, where together with friends they learn about themselves, Judaism and Zionism through an incredible array of experiences such as Kibbutz, Volunteering, Seminars, Professional Internship, Magen David Adom, and IDF experience.
