A passionate Beit Midrash in which Israel's young adults come together from across the religious and political spectrum to forge a new paradigm for Israel.
Students learn canonical Jewish and Western texts with one another, drawing inspiration from them for Israel's future.
Israelis in their 20’s grapple with major questions regarding their Jewish identity, their allegiance to country, and their goals for adulthood. They emerge from military and national service with more questions and fewer answers than ever before, seeking ideas, values and associations to guide them in forging their lives as adults. Yet they are surrounded by pervasive media messaging and societal rifts that conspire to sow dissatisfaction, pessimism and even apathy among this crucial young demographic regarding life in the Jewish state.
Ein Prat addresses this need by providing a platform for a powerfully positive alternative within Israeli society. Ein Prat’s programs nurture young adults’ sense of themselves as Jews and Israelis, promote a sense of belonging and community among people of diverse backgrounds, and facilitate activities that express Jewish values and democratic ideals while adding value to society at large.
