About the Programme

Genesis & JLE JInternship 2018

Make Israel your home this summer in our new sizzling 8 Week INTERNSHIP & STUDY programme, soaking up Israel, independent living and gaining professional work experience in the homeland of the Jewish People.

Why Israel?

You’re not seriously asking that are you? 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 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?

Cheeky! 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 program will also give you your independence, time to travel and explore the country within the structure of an inspiring group programme.

How is the program structured?

You are keen! We start with a short orientation and Shabbat together before an incredible 2 week study/see the land opener with amazing classes in the morning followed by some sizzling trips and excursions in the afternoons. Yalla! Now it's time to roll up your sleeves & get to work with a 5 week internship working 9-3 before we wipe away the tears and wrap things up with a final few days together at the end. 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 8 weeks we will have 3 phenomenal group Shabbat experiences together, 1 in the Old City of Jerusalem, 1 up north in the spiritual powerhouse of Tsfat and 1 with some of the most welcoming host families around! 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?

Ok you got it! You will work for 5 days a week Sunday-Wednesday, usually 9-3 although this may vary slightly according to your internship placement. When applying to the programme you will let us know the areas you are interested in gaining experience and we will find you relevant placements. You will have an interview with our internship coordinator and be put in touch directly your placement ahead of the trip. Early application will allow us to find you the most suitable placement. Once in Israel, you will be given a travel pass for Jerusalem and also a food voucher to cover meals. A dedicated internship coordinator - who will be responsible for making sure all is well with your placement and accommodation.
