The opportunity to be immersed in Israeli culture while learning about Israeli, Zionist and Jewish history is extremely special. Betar offers its Shnat participants the Machon Le’madrichei Chul as its formal learning component. This 5 month period is followed by a 2 months of volunteering where the participants live independently. Immediately after is a range of seminars, and finally basic army training in the form of Marva. Dispersed throughout are a number of additional seminars, concerts, weekends, trips and chofesh. Betar is interested in fostering the personal growth of its ‘shnatties’ and the maturity they gain from this year in Israel is immeasurable.
