The Ohrsom Gap Year Program revolutionises the gap year experience, intending for its participants to gain a meaningful and holistic year-long journey. The program places emphasis on three key areas: Education, Experience and Travel. Through education, students are able to gain both formal and informal fundamental Jewish values and concepts as well as career building and personal growth. Participants are challenged through internships and MDA experiences, but also rewarded through Ski Trips to the North of Israel as well as Scuba Diving Trips in Eilat.
This program includes traveling abroad to countries such as India where they will hike the Himalayas. Ohrsom takes its participants to Poland for a week of introspection and experiencial learning. Students also travel through Europe visiting several cities where they will have the chance to Sky-Dive, Hike, visit the Northern Lights and more! Ohrsom puts emphasis on self-growth and independence, thereby providing students with an apartment in Jerusalem as their base throughout the year. Ohrsom is an international organisation and our students will be spending the year with students from other countries. Come make life-long friends and have an amazing gap year experience like no other!
