The new Ulpan Etzion Ye’elim program is housed at The Jewish Agency’s Ye’elim Absorption Center in Be’er Sheva, which is considered "the capital of the Negev." Ye’elim is located in a pleasant neighborhood near a shopping center with a bank, post office, pharmacy, grocery store, and bakery. Be’er Sheva is home to Ben-Gurion University and the renowned Soroka Medical Center. It is easily accessible to the center of Israel via a high-speed train. 
Ulpan Etzion students are housed one student per bedroom in 2- or 3-bedroom apartments. Each apartment has a kitchenette, bathroom, small dining area, and basic furnishings. The apartments come with central heating and hot water (a small electric boiler in each apartment). The Absorption Center facilities include a laundry room. Students may order connections for television, cable television, and the internet at their own expense.


The five month course begins in September.
