Testing the Waters: New Summer Teen Experiences
There was something fishy about the Sci-Tech Israel program. Just ask Robert, a rising junior at a Westchester high school, who joined 28 other teens from the New York area and around the country for three weeks on this Israel adventure. The teens met Israeli science and technology experts while exploring the country from Sinai to Eilat and celebrating Shabbat. The teens also learned about marine biology and ecosystems when they visited the National Institute of Oceanography in Haifa on the coast of the Mediterranean.

The Tikvah Overseas Student Institute
The Tikvah Overseas Student Institute invites yeshiva, midrasha, and other post-high school students studying in Israel to apply for a series of seminars, workshops, and courses sponsored by the Tikvah Fund. The educational programs that make up the institute supplement gap-year curricula by providing intimate settings for interdisciplinary study, dialogue, and camaraderie with other select students. By exposing our participants to great texts, intellectuals, and activists, the institute aims to inspire the next generation of thinkers who can lead the Jewish community, informed by Jewish values and ideas, as we confront the great questions of our times.

Minister of Diaspora Affairs Naftali Bennett Advancing Plan to Bring Families of Lone Soldiers to Israel
Minister of Diaspora Affairs Naftali Bennett is promoting a government decision to bring the parents and families of lone soldiers serving in the IDF to Israel to visit their children during their service. More than 2,900 lone soldiers whose parents live abroad are currently serving in the IDF. While there are organizations that facilitate parental visits to Israel, not all parents of serving lone soldiers can afford such an expense. As such, the Ministry of Diaspora Affairs—in conjunction with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Ministry of Defense— will formulate and implement a unique program for organized visits.
