Shevet gives chanichim a new way to explore their Judaism and is aimed at those chanichim who want to learn about and grow within the traditions of Modern Orthodox Judaism. Through special events, classes, guest speakers, and field trips, participants are exposed to a modern Jewish lifestyle, and have the opportunity to ask questions of their own to our knowledgeable educational staff. The Shevet programme is endorsed by Tribe.
Designed for Orthodox and observant Jewish youth who are interested in experiencing the Year Course programme within a religious framework, Shalem combines a Beit Midrash programme of traditional Torah studies with the volunteering and experiential components of Year Course.
One of the key ideals of any Jewish community is to improve the world around us, based on the principles of Tzedek (justice), Tzedakah (Acts of Kindness) and Tikkun Olam (social Action). Based on these concepts, FZY is offering the chance this coming year for a small group of chanichim to travel to Rwanda for one month to work in an orphanage village.
The rich history of Israel is deeply influenced by other Jewish communities worldwide, whose connection to Israel spans past, present and future. Year Course Olami explores these connections with a series of week-long journeys outside of Israel to countries around the globe. Explore the Lost Jewish Communities and learn through hands on visits how these countries and communities shaped the creation of Israel, and how Israel continues to shape them today.
