All rooms sleep three people. All rooms include a shower room and a small kitchen.
The participants are in charge of cleaning their own rooms. Once a month there’s a room check, so you’d better tidy up those beds! 😊
You will receive a monthly allowance for meals.
All other expenses are the responsibility of the participant.
The kibbutz supplies three meals each weekday (a value of 25 NIS per meal).
On weekends (Friday and Saturday), the kibbutz supplies two meals a day.
The allowance you receive is sufficient for all meals, but if you wish to purchase food at the local shop, you may do so at your own expense.

Your working/studying day will finish at 17:00 p.m. After that, it’s your spare time! You can then rest, do your homework, hang out with your friends or join the different informal activities. These activities are mostly not compulsory, but they are highly recommended!
The weekend is your time to relax and explore! You can visit family or friends outside the kibbutz.
The local pub is the place to get together in the evenings! It’s near the housing area. Making social connections is all up to you. The friendly people you meet while working provide a great opportunity to make friends. 😊 The kibbutz also hosts cultural events and often celebrates the Jewish holidays together.

IMPORTANT – READ THIS BEFORE MESSAGING US! Our organization is in charge only of the registration of tourists who want to participate in the program. Generally, our participants come to Israel as tourists, and if they are eligible, they can benefit from a Masa Israel Journey Grant/Scholarship, and significantly reduce the program cost. Once they have finished the program, they can begin their Aliyah process with a much better Hebrew level. If you have already made Aliyah or want to come to Israel as an Oleh/Olah, please visit The Jewish Agency for Israel directly.
