The new design, which has been under development for almost a year, provides potential participants with a user friendly and graphically exciting web experience.

The Center presents its many Israel programs according to category and type of Israel journey. Listed under titles like Kibbutz Ulpan, Kibbutz Volunteering, Tikkun Olam – Social Justice, Arabic and Coexistence, Creative Ecology and Environmental Studies and lastly Build Your Own Israel Experience, potential participants will find a panoply of short and long term programs.

“The Kibbutz Program Center is very proud to be able to present some of the very best Israel adventures on a website that reflects the quality of the programs themselves,” said Kibbutz Program Center Director Hiam Simon. “Along with our traditional offerings of Ulpan, immersive Hebrew instruction, on Kibbutz and Kibbutz Volunteers, we are extremely excited about our first time offerings of the Ma’ase Olam – Israel Teaching Fellows Program and their Service Year in Acco as well as two programs offered by BINA, a Social Action Gap Year and the Tikkun Olam Post College Program in Tel Aviv / Jaffa,” he continued.

Behind the website the Kibbutz Program Center offers a full time office in the United States providing full support and available to answer any and all questions. The office can be reached at (212) 462-2764.
