Masa Israel Teaching Fellows (MITF) in Jerusalem | Academic Year 2020-21

MITF is Ramah’s first-ever immersive Israel experience for college graduates ages 21-35. MITF fellows spend an exciting year teaching English in Israeli schools, making a meaningful impact on the lives of their students, learning Hebrew, and living in Jerusalem. This highly subsidized program provides extensive opportunities for personal and professional growth and enrichment. Ramah MITF is a partnership between Masa and the Israeli Ministry of Education.

BaMidbar Wilderness Therapy | Dec. 22, 2019 – Jan. 12, 2020 (a program of Ramah in the Rockies)

BaMidbar’s therapeutic expeditions are immersive experiences that help Jewish young adults ages 18-28 overcome personal hurdles and get on their feet as confident and adjusted adults. Using wilderness and adventure-based experiences as a vehicle to promote self-reflection and community connection, students build a toolkit to face life’s challenges. BaMidbar’s program serves emerging adults who may or may not have a history of mental health challenges, but who are struggling to find their way forward as they transition from adolescence into adulthood.
