About Hevruta

The Hevruta Gap-Year Program, a collaboration of the Shalom Hartman Institute and Hebrew College, is the first fully integrated and balanced gap-year program for North American and Israeli student leaders from a diverse range of Jewish backgrounds and perspectives.

Hevruta invites young men and women from throughout Israel and North America, those with religious or secular backgrounds, to participate in the program.

This exciting and dynamic learning opportunity addresses both Israeli and North American cultures and contexts as compelling centers of contemporary Jewish leadership and discovery.

Over the course of their 9-month experience, Hevruta participants engage in rigorous inquiry and text study, while taking advantage of Jerusalem’s rich intellectual and spiritual resources.

After completing the program, Hevruta alumni are well-positioned to use their influential voices to shape the Jewish people’s most important conversations and communal decisions.
