The Cultural Exchange program is an enriching experience where the acquisition of knowledge, international experience and personal growth are essential elements for live changing transformations.
The south American Program at Yeshivat Hakotel, one of the most traditional Zionist Yeshivot in the country, was founded in 2005 by Rabbi Daniel Segal שלט"א. The program was created with the objective of taking young Jews who were mere Spectators of Judaism and turning them into capable thinkers with the ability to read, research, argument and question traditional Jewish text. Over the past ten years the program has graduated over 300 students. Two thirds of which have made aliya while the other third have returned to theit home countries dedicated to helping the local Jewish community.
The authentic Zionist experience and a high level Jewish education in a warm and receptive atmosphere are the main factors that make this program truly unique.
