Each summer 200 Israeli young adults from across the religious spectrum take part in the Elul program. Israel’s largest pluralistic young adult learning framework, the Elul program takes place on different campuses around Israel and consists of 40 days of intensive Jewish learning.
Participants report that the program enriches their knowledge and identity as Jewish Israelis, strengthens their appreciation for Judaism and Jewish diversity, and enhances their connection to Jewish values, among other outcomes.
The Elul program has been featured in articles in the Forward, Haaretz, Jerusalem Post, and Times of Israel for its uniqueness and success.
What our alumni think
"In the Elul program I learned and understood how Judaism is more than a religion – it is a culture and a nation."
"The Elul program was a deep dive into diverse worlds of content and into my identity."
