Nativ is a challenging academic gap year program for Jewish high school graduates dedicated to creating and inspiring the Conservative Jewish leaders of tomorrow. Nativ, which means “path” in Hebrew, provides a unique opportunity to explore new directions on the journey to becoming a Jewish adult.
From September to May Nativ participants are immersed in the rich and diverse society of Israel, exploring the land and enjoying a fulfilling Conservative Jewish lifestyle.
“I am so grateful for the ways in which the Nativ College Leadership Program in Israel helped us cultivate friendships through meaningful Jewish experiences and encouraged us to continuously explore our relationship with Judaism.”
