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 countless ways. Without Nativ I would never have met some of my best friends in the world, or experienced some of my all time favorite moments. But most importantly, Nativ gave me the time and space to really get to know myself and grow into a more cultured and confident individual.”
