With the International Program, you will enjoy all the wonderful core components that Aardvark Israel has to offer as well as travel to eight different countries throughout the world during your nine months in Israel. An option to participate in only one semester of the International Program including four trips is also available.
Through exciting and memorable trips designed to enhance your semester or year in Israel and deepen your understanding of the greater world around them, you will also gain a fuller appreciation for the reaches of the Jewish community worldwide. The trips are designed for the students to have a great time, but at the foundation of each itinerary is a strong educational rationale designed to enrich the participants.
On each of these trips, you will…
- Visit the main tourist sites of the country and experience the local culture - Understand the Jewish narrative of the country - Learn about the relationship between Israel and the country
On each trip, you will visit the major tourist attractions and experience the local culture. Some trips focus on exploring one specific city while others take you throughout the country. The trips will also teach you about the history of the Jewish communities in the area through meeting local Jewish residents, visiting Jewish museums, attending synagogue, and/or participating in Jewish walking tours. In nearly every country, you will be hosted by the Israeli Embassy and have a meeting with the Israeli Ambassador or other senior official. And, you will have an amazing time throughout your travels!
All trips will be led by an Aardvark staff member and professional local tour guides are utilized for some aspects of the trips.
While abroad, programming in Israel continues for other Aardvark participants. Although you will miss some volunteering, classes, and activities, you won’t miss any of the program highlights. Students enrolled in courses for academic credit will arrange with their teachers to make up any work they may miss while abroad.
