And that is just the beginning.
At Nishmat you will encounter Israel as an insider. Your relationship with the Land, the State, and the Israelis you meet will shape how you relate to Israel for the rest of your life.
Living in Jerusalem is an invaluable part of the Nishmat experience. Through weekly Chessed projects and joint programming, students become a part of the landscape of the local neighborhood.
Just a short bus ride from the Kotel (30 min), Emek Refaim (10 min), and the center of town (25 min), students are encouraged to explore this magnificent city and make it their own. Nishmat is located right on the beautiful “Park Hamesila” jogging trail that students use and enjoy.
Nishmat is close enough to the hustle and bustle of the city to be convenient and accessible, but far enough away that students are able to focus and be present on campus.
Our program introduces our students to the breadth, beauty and depth of the modern State of Israel. There is at least one communal Shabbat and one Tiyul throughout Israel each month. Whether that means hiking in the Golan, snorkeling in Eilat, interacting with artists in Tzfat, visiting an עיר פיתוח, spending Shabbat on a Kibbutz, meeting old and new immigrants and much more, you will encounter Israel in all its beautiful complexity.
Student at Nishmat want the independence to grow and the support to thrive.
