Welcome to Mifgash:
Midrasha's American and Israeli
Teen Integration Program

Mifgash is designed to grow our Jewish teens' connection to Israel by building friendships between our teens and Israeli peers.


With Mifgash, the goal is for teens to strengthen relationships between our teens and the people of Israel,  educate Israeli teens about Jewish life in the Diaspora, serve as a catalyst for further Israel-Diaspora relationship building and programming, develop a deeper connection to Israel through personal relationships, share our culture and our Jewish lives in America, and of course, practice Tikkun Olam (Repairing the world)!

There Are Two Ways To Join In The Program 


Each Winter, a group of Midrasha teens fly to Israel to participate in a 10-12 day adventure across the country. They're accompanied by like-minded Israeli teens and they have the opportunity to collaborate, learn, and experience what teen life is like in the Jewish homeland.
