Internships and Hitnadvut
Amudim teaches a Torat Chayim and Torat Chesed, emphasizing that responsibility for community and the Jewish people is a direct extension of limmud ha-Torah and that part of leading a Torah lifestyle is to dedicate oneself to engaging with society. To this end, Amudim asks students to devote time and energy each week to those less fortunate or take up a small internship in Israel.
Each week, our students are paired with a professional who is making a difference in Israeli society and working in fields of interest to them. Taking time for Jewish communal service or to contribute to Israeli society puts the knowledge, skills and values acquired at Amudim in dialogue with the world outside of its walls.
