Dear Friends,

Young Judaea's Year Course began taking high school graduates to Israel in 1956, a good decade before gap year abroad programs started attracting large numbers of American students. The main ingredients of successful programs--experiencing another culture, learning a language, personal independence, making lifelong friends and having fun--were all part of Year Course from the beginning.

More than 50 years later, Year Course is more dynamic than ever, and I recently spoke with Adam Jenshil, the program's new director, in Jerusalem. As you'll see from our conversation in my latest podcast, this learn-volunteer-travel experience continues to offer all the advantages of the best study-abroad programs plus one--a virtual guarantee of Jewish continuity for the participants.

I hope you are regularly checking our website, www.hadassah.org, for the latest Hadassah news. And please remember to suggest to your friends that they do the same.

To see my most recent podcast, as well as those from the archives, go to www.hadassah.org/president.
