Jewessence is an eight-month Israel experience, our home is nestled in the Givat Hamivtar neighborhood in Jerusalem. We cater to women ages 18 – 22 who grew up in observant homes and are now re-exploring their relationship with Judaism.
Jewessence is an authentic experience, centered on individual and balanced growth. The education is experiential, discussion based and relevant. We are not the typical Israel program, nor are we a seminary. We are an opportunity to take time out, take account and focus on your personal strengths and unique talents , our goal is that you will leave Jewessence confident about your Jewish identity, empowered in your privilege to contribute and positive about what the future holds. We aim to facilitate each woman to heal, grow and find her place among the Jewish people.
