Join KIVUNIM for the first-of-its-kind summer program for high school students, a travel adventure with Jewish communities across the Americas!
How much do you know about the Jews of Latin America? While the KIVUNIM gap-year program has brought students to Israel, Morocco, India, and other Jewish communities across Europe, Africa, and Asia, many of us in the United States are unfamiliar with our closest neighbors. Enter: KIVUNIM Americas. Beginning in Summer 2019, a group of young travelers will embark on unforgettable journey to learn, explore, and develop connections in Mexico and Brazil. These intrepid students will not take classes from afar; they will have the chance to bond with their Latin American counterparts, reexamine their Jewish identities through a global lens, expand their intellectual horizons, and have a great time in the process. The participants of KIVUNIM Americas are building a bridge, connecting with communities across the Western Hemisphere.
