Great classes, great teachers, wonderful community. Highly recommended for everyone
Ulpan was absolutely amazing! It was a turning point in my Hebrew learning experience, I went from a beginner level to being fairly comfortable with spoken Hebrew.
I would highly recommend this to anyone who wants to learn Hebrew efficiently and in a very fun atmosphere. And, I plan to go again myself!

DETAILS & WHAT TO EXPECT
Morning classes: classes will be held 5 days per week (Sun-Thu), 4 hours a day (with a mid-morning recess). We’ll be reading, writing, singing, hearing stories, playing games, watching videos, and more.
Afternoons: Afternoons and Fridays are for studying & homework, meeting with teachers for tutoring if desired, helping out on the campus (your occasional help is needed and very much appreciated while you’re here!), and free time.
Evening activities: one of the best parts of the course are the evening activities, including story hour, Hebrew movie night, worship, and most fun of all – immersion night, where we set up a real-life immersion situation based on a weekly theme like going to a shopping mall or going to the airport to catch a flight!
Housing: our housing on campus is two large, separate men’s and women’s dormitories. Each dorm is one large room with individual beds and storage areas. The closeness of everyone together is a blessing as it facilitates conversations, prayer times, and more opportunities to get to know everyone and build friendships. We have very limited private housing, first come first serve, so please contact asap if you need separate housing.
Food: all meals are provided and served daily in the cafeteria. Mealtime is a great chance to get to know your fellow students and practice Hebrew together! Snacks and special dietary items are up to you to bring.
