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 absolutely loved being able to study at the Conservative Yeshiva for the first semester of my time on Nativ. I was able to bond with 15 other Nativers, as well as meet other people who were spending a year in Israel studying for various reasons. Being able to learn Jewish text with people of all ages and stages in life was truly unforgettable.”
