Ramah will begin its first-ever immersive Israel experience for college graduates. Ramah Israel has been selected to run the Masa Israel Teaching Fellows (MITF) program in Jerusalem, starting in August 2019. The MITF invites English-speaking college graduates ages 21-35 to come to Israel for 10 months as English teachers and teachers’ aides in schools across the country.
At Ramah, they celebrate their bond with and love for Israel. MITF is an innovative way to engage Ramah alumni and other young professionals in creating a new community, offering them the opportunity to impact the future of Israeli society, experience day-to-day life in Israel, and build their own Ramah kehillah in Jerusalem.
MITF is a partnership between Masa Israel Journey and the Ministry of Education. As the program is highly subsidized, the cost to participate in MITF Jerusalem is only $1,000 for the entire 10-month program.
Beyond the teaching experience itself, the MITF program provides extensive opportunities for personal and professional growth and enrichment. Fellows receive training before and during their teaching assignments. In addition, Fellows participate in organized tours and travel, learn in a Hebrew ulpan, and volunteer in a variety of settings. The program provides housing, a monthly living stipend, and medical insurance.
Aliza Grabin, former associate director and guidance counselor for Tichon Ramah Yerushalayim (TRY), the Ramah Jerusalem High School, will be directing this program. With her vast experience and expertise in the world of Ramah and Israel programs, Grabin will be an exceptional asset to the MITF program.
If you are between the ages of 21-35, or if you know someone who might be interested in this exciting opportunity, visit MITF Jerusalem website or contact firstname.lastname@example.org. All are welcome to apply for the program; Ramah experience is not required.
