Over 150 students participate in ‘Here Next Year’ celebration

Over 150 students planning on staying in Israel after the completion of their gap year programs, participated in a celebratory barbeque hosted by Here Next Year in conjunction with Nefesh B’Nefesh on Friday. The Yeshiva and Seminary students are slated to stay in Israel and join the army, participate in the national service, or attend Israeli universities. 

Here Next Year, a non-profit organization, runs events aimed at distributing information in English about opportunities in Israel and creating a sense of community amongst the students who are thinking of staying in Israel. This past March, over 100 yeshiva and seminary students attended a shabbat program run in Givat Shmuel, the largest hub of Modern Orthodox young olim, in order to experience the community and learn more about life in Israel.
