New "Tochnit Shiluv" Option Combines Shana Bet with Sherut Leumi
MMY is pleased to announce the formation of a new and exciting option for Shana Bet students. Tochnit Shiluv will create an opportunity to spend a second year learning in MMY while also taking major steps towards "Shiluv" - integration into Israeli society.
This full-year program involves two mornings each week of Sherut Leumi (National Service) volunteering under the auspices of the Aguda L'hitnadvut - the oldest and largest organization in charge of coordinating Sherut Leumi for religious girls. The rest of the week they will learn in MMY as full members of the regular Shana Bet program. During the second semester, the Shiluv girls will also take a part-time Ulpan to improve their Hebrew skills.
The program, which will begin as a pilot project this fall with a small group of students, is an especially attractive option for students who want to remain in Israel and attend university afterwards. It will give them the opportunity to improve their Hebrew substantially and begin to integrate into Israeli society and culture, while continuing to learn and grow in the comfortable environment of MMY.
