It has been Phyllis’ mission to make the Israel Gap Year a crucial part of the post-secondary experience where students develop resilience, independence, and a deeper understanding of their Jewish identity and connection to Israel. Counseling teens who are considering an Israel Gap Year is an important and meaningful process requiring empathy, guidance, and understanding. Engaging in open and honest conversations is important to help these young individuals explore their motivations, goals, and concerns surrounding an Israel Gap Year. The focus is on supporting them in making informed decisions about how to best utilize their time and navigate the potential challenges they may encounter.


Counseling sessions involve discussing Gap Year options, such as:

•  volunteering

•  internships

•  travel

•  study and personal development activities

•  individual interests and aspirations.

It is essential to address any fears or uncertainties they may have, while emphasizing the value of experiential learning, self-reflection, and personal growth that an Israel Gap Year can provide. By empowering teens to take ownership of their Israel Gap Year journey, they will be setting themselves on a path towards a fulfilling and life changing experience.
