Kibbutz Ulpan

Aliyah Kibbutz Ulpan Maagan MichaelDave Bender

Interested in learning Hebrew while living on a kibbutz? Volunteer in a unique collective setting and experience life unlike anywhere else!

On the five-month Kibbutz Ulpan program, the week will be divided equally between time spent studying in intensive Hebrew-language courses, and performing volunteer work on your host kibbutz. A typical week includes 18-24 hours spent studying in a classroom environment. Specific type of work depends on the needs of the kibbutz.

Additionally, you will have access to a rich variety of cultural activities organized by the kibbutz and by The Jewish Agency.

Alumni of Kibbutz Ulpan typically enter university, join the IDF, or embark on careers in Israel. For your convenience each kibbutz offers two start dates during the year.



On kibbutzim around the country, including the following:

Ein Hashofet


Sde Eliyahu

Maagan Michael





Kibbutz Ulpan is open to singles and couples, ages 18-30, without children. Admission is subject to an interview with a shaliach or program coordinator. You must receive written permission from a doctor for this labor-intensive program. Participants must be physically and mentally equipped for kibbutz life and come with a willingness to work.
