Masa Israel Teaching Fellows operates in eight cities across Israel, all of which are on the socioeconomic periphery of Israeli society—each city needs your help.
Once you apply, Masa Israel will match you with one of our four fellowship organizers in Israel. Each organizer works with 1-3 cities and that offer a unique social or community framework, but all promise the chance to make a difference and the support you’ll need to do it.
Cohorts from cities that are operated by the same provider will often participate in trainings and extracurricular activities together.
On your application, we'll ask if you have a preference about the city in which you'll teach (you can learn more about the cities and the differences between them above).
If you're not sure, you can set up a time to talk to one of our recruitment managers about the type of community you'd like to be a part of, what kind of secondary volunteer project you'd like to do, and if you want to be in a certain region of the country. Note that some cities are very popular and fill up early in the application process, so you may not always get your first choice. Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to set up a call.
A few things to consider when selecting a city preference:
- What are the schools like?
- How many other fellows will be in my cohort?
- How do people get around? What type of public transportation is available?
- What are the apartments like? How many other Fellows will I be living with?
- Are host families offered? How many people take advantage of their host family?
