Masa - Gateway to Israel Programs

Masa (Hebrew for "Journey") is a partnership between the Israeli government and the Jewish Agency which seeks to strengthen the next generation of Jewish People. Masa endeavors to give thousands of young Jews in the Diaspora the opportunity to spend a semester or a full year in Israel without financial constraints.

She’arim has been approved as a Masa program, and as such students that study at She’arim are entitled to grants and scholarships.

Work Study

For students studying two months or longer, She’arim offers a work study program. This option allows you to help out in the school in a variety of ways (cooking, arranging shabbos hospitality, etc) and you “earn” $7 per hour reduced from your tuition. Work study can add up quickly and is a great resource for motivated students.

Long-Term Interest-Free Payment Plans

If your tuition is placed in a Payment Plan it means we will allow you to pay your tuition in a time frame that is convenient and comfortable for you. We understand that you may not be able to pay tuition until after you return to your home town and begin working-- and it's okay! The payment plan is interest free and we work with you to create a schedule that works for you.

Jewish Federations

The Jewish Federations of North America: Local Jewish Federations often offer scholarships and grants for community members going to Israel. For more information:

In other countries do a search for "Jewish federation" and the name of the country.

Many synagogues and Jewish organizations may provide assistance for a period of study in Israel. We suggest that you contact these organizations to see if you might be eligible for financial assistance.

Other sources

We suggest that you contact your local Rabbi and synagogue for possible assistance and/or suggestion regarding local resources which may be available. The local Jewish Federation, Board of Jewish Education, Hillel, and other similar organizations may be equally useful.
