Kayitz BaBayit: Come Home to Jerusalem

July 2-20, 2023

Study, Pray, and Explore with FJC’s Summer Experience!

Live in Jerusalem and engage with Israeli society, speak Hebrew, pray at the Western Wall, and walk the city’s ancient streets during our 3-week Summer Program. Enjoy FJC’s great location in the heart of Jerusalem just five minutes on foot from all of the city center’s shops, restaurants, and cultural institutions and a 15 minute walk to the Old City.

Enjoy daily opportunities to pray together, study Jewish texts, speak modern Hebrew, and explore Jerusalem with students from around the world!

In 2023 we are excited to continue our partnerships with Keilim (Masorti UK), Marom (South America), and our French Program.

We are also bringing back our part-time volunteering program! See the application for more details.


Your days will be filled with opportunities to sharpen your Hebrew skills with our expert Hebrew language instructors, pore over Jewish texts with our CY Faculty, explore the famed sites and hidden gems around Jerusalem, and pray together both on campus and at the Western Wall.

Check out this summer’s schedule and course descriptions now!


Our 3-week program allows you to experience Jerusalem like a local. Our program does not provide lodging, but our central location allows you to choose housing that best suits you:

    • AirBnB or Sublet
    • Hotel or Hostel
    • Agron Guest House (please email for pricing)


Come back to Israel and experience the summer with participants of all ages and backgrounds, improve your Hebrew, and tackle age-old questions and contemporary issues.

Join us in the HEART of Jerusalem!
