Accommodations – Where Does Seminar Take Place?

Ramah Seminar is based at two principal sites:

  1. Chavat Hanoar Hatzioni, the Israel Goldstein Youth Village (commonly referred to as the Chava) in Jerusalem
  2. Hodayot Youth Village, adjacent to Kibbutz Lavi, near the Sea of Galilee

The Chava, a lush, tree-lined campus that includes athletic facilities, library, health center, indoor pool and a kosher dining room, is our home base for the days of the program spent in Jerusalem.

The groups are housed for nine days at Hodayot, a youth village down the road from Kibbutz Lavi in the Galilee.

During the days spent visiting the Negev and the Arava deserts, Seminar stays at kibbutz guesthouses, and one night in an outdoor Bedouin tent experience at Kfar Hanokdim.

Seminar participants also spend one full Shabbat weekend with friends, family or specially selected Ramah hosts, allowing them to experience life in an Israeli home and atmosphere.
