Israel Programs

See the whole of Israel in just 3 weeks from the Golan to the Dead Sea, EVEN EILAT! The only way to spend your Grade 10 July Holidays, connect and bond with your friends and Madrichim on a completely different level by doing the most insane activities and tiyulim.



Creating a deep love and appreciation for Judaism and Zionism is achieved through the many experiences you will encounter throughout the programme. Get ready to experience Judaism and Zionism like you have never before.


Hadracha is a programme rich in education. You will be taught about the history of each city you visit, each site you encounter and the many heroic figures Israel has seen throughout its’ illustrious history.


From riding a camel, to hikes before sunrise, kayaking in the Jordan River, partying on a boat, making our bus rides the biggest vibe, scavenger hunting in a beautiful Israeli city and so much more.

For a person who has never been to Israel I can say without a doubt Hadracha has been an amazing first experience of Israel. From going to the Kotel, the tunnels, the Shuks, the Bedouin tents, climbing Masada. I literally couldn’t have asked for anything more. We arrived as friends and left as a family.Teegan Chernotsky, Hadracha 2015.

When choosing what to do on your year after Matric we believe that Bnei Akiva has the perfect offering for you. Whether you choose to go on MTA and develop and enhance your Torah learning while experiencing living in Israeli society or on Limmud where you experience the Land of Israel and contributing to Israeli society. Bnei Akiva sees the year after school not as a “gap year” or “year off”, but rather as “a year on”, a year which will equip you for your future as an active member of the Jewish people.
