Young Adults | Pre Army Programs

Israel’s compulsory military service requires young Israeli women and men to dedicate two or three of their post-high school years, respectively, to serving their nation.  Remarkably, a significant number of Israeli high school graduates choose to spend yet another year in a community service and study program, even before they enlist in the IDF.  HaMidrasha cultivates and honors this distinctly Israeli culture of youthful altruism, through a variety of pre- and post-army educational programs that build the participants’ Jewish identity, promote their commitment to social activism, and fortify the nation through their efforts.
