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.
“Why Nativ? Nativ gave me friends for a life time, gave me direction on what kind of person I want to be and what I want to do, and two years after nativ that is proven because today I sat with a friend from nativ eating ice cream on an army base while we both serve in the IDF.”
