Aardvark Israel was founded as a vehicle to maximize the number of young Jews coming to Israel for meaningful, life-changing experiences that strengthen their Jewish identity, commitment to Israel, and foster personal growth.
Fundamental to Aardvark Israel's establishment is the commitment to offer programs at affordable prices in order to make high-quality Israel experiences available and accessible to as many young adults as possible. With a highly experienced team of premier educators and Israel programs staff, coupled with the most innovative and dynamic programs available for today's young adults, Aardvark Israel promises to deliver the best in Israel programs!
The premier program of Aardvark is the Aardvark Israel Gap Year: a 9-month university program in Israel. The Aardvark Israel Semester Program offers students that can not spend a full year away from their home campus the same great program previously only available to gap year participants as a 5-month option. Aardvark International combines an immersion program in Israel, with EIGHT exciting different countries throughout the world. The Selah - Aardvark Year Program is a dynamic Jewish learning program tailor-made for recent high school graduates, both men and women, who are seeking a deeper approach to the study of Judaism in Israel.
Aardvark Israel is operated in conjunction with Masa, which is a project of the Government of Israel and Jewish communities around the world, represented by the Jewish Agency for Israel and its partners, United Jewish Communities / the Federations of North America, and Keren Hayesod - UIA.
