Michlelet is an extraordinary program for teenage girls who want to spend their summer in a productive way and have a great time, too. Join with the amazing staff and incredible friends for the summer of a lifetime!
Girls on Michlelet will gain a greater appreciation of Torah, chesed and the land of Israel. The program is built around exciting learning sessions with amazing educators and advisors, meaningful chesed opportunities where our NCSYers make a real difference and thrilling tiyulim all across Israel!
There are at least two volunteer opportunities a week. We help at a food bank and bring cheer to hospitals, create fun and therapeutic programs for children who have been the victims of terror, and work with the disadvantaged, from all segments of society.
Our touring takes us all over Israel: from Tzfat to Masada, and from Ein Gedi to the Mediterranean Sea. Banana boating, hiking, rafting, zip-lining, rappelling and more - we do it all!
Michlelet offers a wide range of stimulating classes for beginner through advanced levels and is staffed with accomplished advisors, teachers, and world-famous rabbis from across the globe.
The warm and friendly environment at Michlelet allows you to develop your own special connection with Torah. Classic Jewish texts come alive in an incredible way.
Michlelet is based on the gorgeous Reishit Yerushalyim campus in sunny Beit Shemesh. Each room is fully air conditioned, and there are tennis and basketball courts, a fitness center, and a professional chef on staff.
A summer spent on Michlelet will open your heart, your eyes and your mind to all that Israel has to offer!
