Onward Israel offers exciting resume building opportunities—internships, service learning, academic study and fellowships—providing you with a global, cross-cultural experience in Israel and direct contact with Israeli peers. Participants in each program come from the same community or organization, creating an opportunity to build local networks and carry on your connections after the program. Onward Israel is powered by The Jewish Agency and participating local Jewish federations and organizations.
