About the Programme

Genesis & JLE JInternship 2019

Make Israel your home this summer in our new sizzling 7 Week INTERNSHIP & STUDY programme, soaking up Israel, independent living and gaining professional work experience in the homeland of the Jewish People.

Why Israel?

Israel in the summer has it all...great weather, great food, amazing people plus limitless opportunities to be inspired and connect to the Jewish People. Israel has made its success out of entrepreneurship, hard work, creativity and determination, it is a fantastic place to intern and make your summer really count!

Why an Internship?

Ok, so you’re doing a three year course, your summer lasts four months and what you do with it says a lot about you. Using one summer to gain great experience and clarity on your future life choices will not only start to give you clarity on which direction you want to take in the future but it also looks fantastic on your resume and might make all the difference to your future. What’s more to seal a work placement in an exciting start Up nation like Israel takes things to a whole new level!

Why with Genesis?

You can expect all of the things you love about Genesis from inspirational shabbatot, great speakers, a team of dedicated educators to turn a summer internship into a thought provoking, character building, soul nourishing journey of a life time! Plus there's always great food. All that said, as we foray into the world of medium length trips, this new programme will also give you your independence, time to travel and explore the country within the structure of an inspiring group environment.

How is the program structured?

We start with a short orientation and Shabbat together as part of an incredible week of study & see the land with amazing classes in the morning followed by mini-trips and activities in the afternoons. Then it's time to roll up your sleeves & get to work with a 6 week internship where you'll gain crucial skills working 9am-3pm. We'll finish up with a final few days together at the end to close the programme and say farewell. Shabbatot are a combo of those spent together and the freedom to do your own thing but check out the section on weekends for more details :)

What about the weekends?

For the 7 weeks we will have 3 phenomenal group Shabbat experiences together, 1 in the Old City of Jerusalem, 1 in the North, and 1 with some of the most welcoming host families around in Ramat Bet Shemesh! That leaves every other Shabbat for you to spend as you wish although we will always offer an organised alternative for those who would like hospitality, #chickensoup or to spend meals with our own Genesis team who will be with you throughout.

Tell me more about the Internship?

You're internship placement is for 5 days a week Sunday-Thursday, usually 9-3 although this may vary slightly according to the requirements of the company. When applying to the programme you will let JInternship know the areas you are interested in gaining experience and they aim to find you relevant placements. You will have an interview with the JInternship coordinator and be put in touch directly with your placement ahead of the trip. Early application will give you the best chance to secure the most suitable placement. Once in Israel, you will be given a travel pass for Jerusalem and also a food voucher to cover some meals. A dedicated internship coordinator will be responsible for making sure all is well with your placement and accommodation.
