Shana Ba'Aretz

Nishmat’s Shana Ba’Aretz is a unique program for post high school students who are looking for a challenging year of Torah study in a completely Israeli environment.

Take your Torah learning to the next level.

With its well-deserved reputation for intensive text-based Torah study, Nishmat will give you the opportunity to spend a year in a beautiful Bet Midrash, studying in chevruta, side-by-side with Nishmat’s advanced scholars. Nishmat will give you the opportunity to develop proficiency in Gemara, Halacha, Machshava and Tanach. We educate toward the goal of students being able to learn independently after they leave; opening the doors for being a lifelong learner who is constantly able to continue growing in their knowledge of, and passion for, Judaism.

Don’t just come to Israel, become a part of Israel!

At Nishmat you will be integrated into an Israeli Bet Midrash – sharing your chevrutot and classes with Israeli students. Shana Ba’Aretz classes are Ivrit b’Ivrit and our students and faculty are wholeheartedly Zionist. Through your learning, your friendships with Israeli classmates and volunteer chesed work, you will be a part of the present and the future of the State of Israel. Tanach in hand, you will travel the land of Israel for Shabbatot and tiyulim… you’ll fall in love with Eretz Yisrael.

This is a year to grow in avodat Hashem.

At Nishmat, growth in Avodat Hashem comes from learning Torah, from sharing Shabbatot, tefillah, and chesed together with an exceptional community of fellow students. With shiurim on Tefillah, Chassidut, Mussar and Machshava, we encourage each student to fulfill her spiritual potential.
