An online application form can be filled out here.

Decisions on applications will be made by a committee set up for that purpose.  Priority will be given to students who score high on the preparatory examinations.


Prices includes food, lodging and transportation in Israel and Jordan.  Students will be required to cover travel expenses to and from Israel and travel medical insurance.  Costs are subject to change up to 2 months before the start of the program.  If cost is an issue for you, please let us know, and fill out an application form anyway.  We hope to be able to make some funds available for scholarships.

Refund Policy

The deadline for withdrawal is two months prior to the program start date.   If you withdraw after the deadline, the cancellation fee is 25% of the total program cost. 

JFS will endeavor to provide a refund if we are forced to cancel the program unexpectedly due to events outside of our control.   We recommend travelers insurance since JFS cannot guarantee the refund of money paid towards the program.
