We started Thrive in 2014 because we noticed how much of an impact living in Israel for over four months had on students. We partnered with Hebrew U to build onto their study abroad program creating a close-knit cohort of students who wanted to go deeper exploring the Jewish homeland.
Being part of “normal” life here, meeting the people, and exploring the land left students with a nuanced appreciation of Israel and a deeper understanding of themselves as young Jewish leaders. Since then, we have added a partnership with Tel Aviv University and continue to grow our alumni family.
Nothing makes me more proud than seeing the accomplishments - personal, professional, and otherwise - of our alumni. They are constantly referring to transformative experiences on Thrive as the inspiration behind some of their biggest decisions in life. I hope to welcome you and many more students to a semester on Thrive.
