Masa Israel Teaching Fellows provides exceptional Jewish college graduates with the opportunity to address Israel’s educational achievement gap and the widespread underperformance of youth in low-income communities on a 10-month English teaching, service-learning program. Following an initial training period, Fellows live in small groups and teach for a minimum of 25 hours a week in schools. Fellows choose or design secondary volunteer projects in their communities. Ongoing pedagogical support, ulpan (Hebrew lessons), host families, trips, and other enrichment activities are provided throughout their time in Israel.


If you have at least one Jewish grandparent and are between 21 and 30 years old, you could be eligible for a fully subsidized 10-month service learning experience.


Once accepted to Masa Israel Teaching Fellows, the only cost to you will be a $1000 deposit that holds your placement. In return, you’ll get funding for round-trip airfare, housing, transportation, trips and seminars across Israel, and a $250 per month living stipend.
