Frontier Israel

Looking for a life‑changing experience this Fall? If you’re unsure whether your in‑person classes will resume next semester, take a leap across the ocean for a meaningful, inspiring adventure you are sure to remember for a lifetime on our inaugural gap semester program: Frontier Israel.

Designed by the expert educators at the Alexander Muss Institute for Israel Education (AMIIE-JNF), this program will provide a real life, modern day pioneering experience for incoming freshmen and rising sophomores attending U.S. academic institutions. Frontier Israel will be comprised of two components:


Meaningful volunteer work in three enriching regions of Israel (Negev, Galilee, and Center) with JNF-USA affiliates. Volunteer opportunities include farming, building hiking paths for the disabled, working with refugees, and more.


Educational explorations designed to broaden horizons and build a student’s portfolio of experiences. Seminars will include learning retreats to enable students to explore Israel in greater depth through hiking, educational trips, and guest lectures.
