Mind the Gap Campaign

Click here to see Mind the Gap in the Jewish Chronicle!

A gap year in Israel can be a life changing experience.

Our own Hachshara gap year programmes have played a major part in shaping and training the future leaders of Bnei Akiva and Jewish Communities around the world.

The government’s decision to increase university fees from 2012, regardless of whether or not they have deferred entry, will deter many from choosing to take a gap year.

Join Bnei Akiva’s ‘Mind the Gap’ campaign, which calls on the government to allow those applying for a deferred entry this year to pay under the current fees system, in line with the legislation relating to the fees increase in 2006.
