iTrack

Price Units

iTrack is a personalized 5-10 month Israel experience program that is designed for young adults between the ages of 18 and 30. The goal is for each participant to build a program that suits his or her specific needs and desires. Every participant, together with the iTrack staff, builds a program that suits the experience that he or she wants to have while in Israel. All programs include Ulpan and monthly excursions and cultural events in order help you to get to know Israel. Program costs range from $4500 (without food, flight, and stipends) up to $8000. MASA grants are available which can help significantly reduce the cost of your program and priority is given to participants receiving grants.

Programs lasting 3-4 months are available but without scholarships from MASA.

Housing in Tel-Aviv is generally in the Beit Milman Dorms at Tel-Aviv University. If you choose to reside in the dorms then you will share an apartment with another iTrack participant. The dorms have been recently upgraded and now include with a television, wi-fi, and air-conditioner units. All apartments have beds, linen, towels, a desk and chairs, a fridge, pots and pans, cutlery, and a stove-top.

You will tell us the date you would like to arrive, the time length of your program, where you would like to live, and any other aspects that are important for you. The purpose of this dialogue is to build your own personal program created by you with our assistance to fully satisfy what you want to get out of your experience in Israel. During this process our staff member will be in touch with you via phone and e-mail to ensure the required flexibility to compose a program for you.

"My name is Rebecca Senn, I am 23 years old and I am from Boston. It was a great decision to join Maslul Ishi since I was able to be part of the group for trips and cultural events yet at the same time I took Hebrew classes and independently pursued my painting career. Thanks to the program's flexibility and support for my creative projects, I rented a painting studio in the Florentine neighborhood in Tel Aviv and had an exhibition of my paintings which gave me the opportunity to add one more goal reached on my curriculum.

During the program, I met lots of interesting people and each one was living his or her own personal experience in Israel which gave the program a much more diverse edge than the average options.

Thank you, Maslul Ishi!"

"I came to Tel Aviv to study music at a recognized school for a year. There, I got to immerse myself in the real Israeli life with people that share the same interest and love for music that I do. I studied jazz and contemporary music while exploring my Jewish roots and myself.

With Maslul Ishi, I got to connect on a global level with people from all over the world who share the same interest and love of Jewish culture.

We went on great trips throughout the country, tasting all the different flavors this country has to offer (literally!). In the end, I'll go back to the United States with another home in my heart and will have acquired friends who I will keep in touch with for life!

Do I need to go any further? Come explore your roots, come explore yourself...”
