GAP YEAR PROGRAM

A once in a lifeTIME opportunity

RABBI JEREMIAS

As our seniors complete his or her final year at NEJA, I would like to take this opportunity to familiarize you with the advantages and opportunities for study abroad. At NEJA, we strongly encourage our students to take advantage of this once-in- a-lifetime opportunity upon graduation. A “gap year” is the perfect opportunity for your child to develop as a student, as well as become better prepared to face the challenges of our modern world. Spending this “gap year” in Israel provides an opportunity to strengthen and solidify one’s bond with Israel and the Jewish people.
