Modeled after the Israeli “mechina” experience, Kol Ami is a 6-month gap year experience that pairs post-high school Israeli teens with Jewish teens from around the world.
Kol Ami strives to forge deep, meaningful, and lasting connections among the next generation of Jews who embrace their differences. During the program, participants learn about each other while exploring Israel, volunteering, taking a wide variety of classes, and living together as a community.
Kol Ami offers leadership and public diplomacy training to prepare you for your next steps in the Jewish community. Study Jewish history, Zionism, Hebrew, philosophy, politics, and Israel advocacy. Alongside the study portion, explore Israel with activities such as hiking, acquiring navigation skills, volunteering, getting to know communities around Israel, and more.
