Programs for Students at Tel Aviv University
We organize a wide range of programming for students studying abroad at Tel Aviv University, including guest speakers, lunch-and-learns, weekend trips, and Shabbat dinners with local families. We work to incorporate the true Israel experience with each student’s study abroad experience, exposing students to Israeli culture and Jewish life in Israel while helping them foster lifelong friendships with one another.
