Post Birthright Study Program

Turn Birthright into a month long Israel experience!

 You are about to participate on the Birthright Israel experience – ten days of fast-paced action-packed adventure, learning and inspiration. Mayanot offers the unique opportunity to extend your trip for another 3 weeks to experience Israel and Judaism in a more tranquil environment, giving you the opportunity to internalize all that you experienced on the ten-day Birthright Israel trip.

Birthright Israel participants can apply for a scholarship to join this program for only $99! This includes tuition, room and board for 3 full weeks (normal tuition for this program is $799). No Hebrew language or Jewish studies background is required.

Discover your Jewish roots with other young Jews from around the world in a thought-provoking program, exploring topics such as Hebrew Language (Ulpan), Kabbalah & Mysticism, Jewish History and Law, Jewish Philosophy, Talmud, contemporary Jewish issues and many other exciting areas of Jewish heritage, culture and thought. Mayanot is located in the heart of Jerusalem and is walking distance to downtown and the Old City. Mayanot offers separate parallel programs for women and men ages 20 through 29.

Cancellations within the seven days prior to your arrival date will result in the forfeiture of the $99 program fee.

This scholarship is available for 3 weeks following your Birthright Israel trip. Opportunities may be available to study at Mayanot for longer or shorter periods of time. Please see the Academic Calendar to ensure that your 3 week stay is when Mayanot is in session
