Semester 2 dates:

August- December 2022 

Beyond Israel views Israel as central to the Jewish experience and endeavours to enhance participants' connection to the country. We aim to achieve this by challenging students intellectually and exposing participants to a range of ideas, personalities and sites.

Beyond Israel is not connected to any organization, nor does it have a political agenda beyond presenting, as much as possible, a balanced view of Israel.

 

We are a pluralist program that considers all expressions of Judaism as equally valid. 

 

We are committed to providing an open and safe environment for all participants irrespective of religious affiliation, political belief, gender and community involvement.

 

In order to establish mutual respect between participants, the program provides those who wish to observe the laws of Shabbat and Kashrut the opportunity to do so, yet does not enforce these laws on those who do not.
