Do I have to make aliyah or consider making aliyah to participate?
Nope. We put absolutely no pressure on you to move to Israel.
What language is the programming conducted in?
What additional activities are supplied by TII?
During the program we will go on a few day tours around the country and attend social and cultural events.
In previous programs we have taken trips to the north of Israel to go kayaking, we have gone camping near the Ein Ghedi Oasis in Eilat, been to basketball games, enjoyed sushi nights, chocolate workshops, wine festivals, and Purim parties.
What do I do in my free time?
In both Jerusalem and in Tel Aviv, you're living in the hub of Israel's social scene, so you have endless options of what to do in your free time. Countless restaurants, bars, and shops are right on your doorstep, and in Jerusalem you are within walking distance of the Old City which of course allows you easy access to many tourist activities. In Jerusalem you are also in very close proximity to bus stops and the light rail which makes getting around very easy. In Tel Aviv you're a short bike ride or half an hour walk from the city center and the beach.
What happens during the High Holidays, like Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur?
You would not work on holidays. As program organizers we may arrange something special to celebrate holiday as a group, however you are free to choose how you spend the day.
What is a typical week like for interns?
Once we are past the orientation stage of the program, you would be working at your placement from Sunday to Thursday. Evenings and weekends are mostly free, however there is usually at least one group session, tour, or an evening activity during the week.
