Since 2016, NCSY Israel has helped English-Speaking teenage immigrants integrate into Israeli society. It has provided a crucial stepping stone in the process of their absorption, producing socially well adjusted, emotionally healthy, proud Israeli teens.
NCSY Israel allows English speaking adolescents the opportunity to take pride in who they are and where they come from, as they become fully acculturated members of Israeli society. Currently NCSY is making an impact through five chapters in Yerushalayim, Bet Shemesh, Modin, Gush Ezion and Ra’anana.
Chapters are run by a chapter director couple and specific advisor staff, able to provide deeper relationships with teens. NCSY youth participate in an average of three monthly events including regional and national events, connecting with friends from across Israel. Events include:
● Rock Climbing: An event for 70 participants from all over Israel.
● NCSY Annual Kickoff: More than 165 NCSYers and staff attend a kickoff event at Hebrew University in Yerushalayim including inflatable games, sports tables, unlimited Pizza Hut, popcorn, cotton candy and the start of meaningful relationships.
● Ein Gedaway Shabbaton: 150 teens and staff attend Ein Gedi overlooking the Dead Sea packed with activities, Ruach and Inspiration.
