Spending six weeks in Israel is definitely a great way to do this.
Hillel is offering you the chance to volunteer in Kiryat Moshe or Bat Yam for one of two six week trips. You will be working with the Ethiopian community in either of these cities.
The dates are as follows:
May 16-June 16 (Application deadline April 15)
June 30-August 7 (Application deadline May 1)
Participants only have to pay airfare. Included in this trip is your travel insurance, accommodations and a $300 stipend. This is too good of an opportunity to give up!
This program includes two Shabbatonim (group weekends), weekly group dinners, Tiyulim (organized field trips), Shiurim (Jewish/Israel content classes) and many more extracurricular programming.
Spending time abroad provides you with an experience of a lifetime. This is a great way to get away from Toronto life and back to Israel.
