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.
“Nativ has impacted my life in so many ways. It enriched my already existing active Jewish practice with memories to relate them to. It gave me an opportunity to live in a different country and learn new customs and culture. Most importantly, it made my love of Israel even stronger.”
A project of the Department of Youth Activities, The United Synagogue of Conservative Judaism.
