Academy is our AUJS program run over the Australian summer, and one of the longest running and most engaging Israel programs in Australia. This year we are restructuring and re-vamping
this trusted program and taking it to the next level! We are adding another week to the experience, including 2 weeks of meaningful and engaging volunteering and still offering our long-standing special interest week- so you can make the experience your own.
Over six fun weeks, spend time in Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, Haifa, Eilat, Tiberius and Tzfat. Visit the Old City of Jerusalem, Masada, Independence Hall, the Supreme Court and Rabin Square; and
experience the Bedouin, Druze and Kibbutz cultures. For school-leavers and university students alike, Academy is the best way to spend the Australian summer and to bring in the New Year in Israeli fun – and still return in time for university!
“Academy is a truly invaluable opportunity for anyone who doesn’t feel ready to commit themselves to a long stay in Israel but wants to explore the land and get in touch with their Jewish roots and identity. If you’re interested in the political aspects of Israel, it provides a great insight into the ongoing issues that surround the Jewish state and people.”
This program is supported by Onward Israel and the Jewish Agency for Israel
