Nativ, USCJ’s gap year program for Jewish high school graduates, is 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.
“During my year on Nativ I met some of the best friends that I will ever have. We spent our second semester in Yerucham volunteering, hiking, camping, cleaning, cooking, and having the time of our lives. Without Nativ, I wouldn’t be the person that I am today.”
