What If I Don't Know Any Hebrew (Or Very Little) Before Coming?

No problem! Our program begins with one month of intensive Ulpan study with experienced and highly qualified Hebrew Ulpan teachers. By the time participants begin volunteering, even those who did not know the Aleph-Bet upon arrival are able to speak at a high enough level to function in their volunteer places. Ulpan instruction continues with sessions throughout the duration of the program to ensure that the participants' Hebrew will continue to improve. By the end of the program, all participants will be able to speak Hebrew at a functional level.
