MEOR Vision is “Meor 2.0″,
the next-level Israel experience after the Meor Israel Trip. The three-week program includes dynamic lectures, one-on-one learning, hiking up North, exploring the desert down South, outdoor adventures (e.g. ziplining, jeeping, segway, bicycle riding), community service, fun evening activities, and free time. Together with outstanding Jewish educators and lay leaders, students delve into Talmudic discourse, acquire new skills in concentrated study of Jewish texts, learn leadership theory and technique, and undertake an engaging seminar focused on personal character development. MEOR Vision also includes a customized learning component, allowing students to develop a topic of their choosing well beyond the lectures. MEOR Vision is only open to university students, graduates and young professionals who have previously participated in the MEOR Israel program, Maimonides Leaders Fellowship or other introductory Jewish learning programs.

I grew exponentially in my knowledge and understanding of Judaism, much further than I could have ever expected. The classes we had gave me new insight into all aspects of Judaism. I especially loved the text studies we did, giving me a much deeper understanding of stories in the Torah. Outside of classes, I had an amazing time living in a religious community and learning from those around me. There was never a moment when I was not learning and growing on the MEOR Vision trip.

MEOR Vision provided an amazing experience that every person should have. I sang, I danced, I learned and enjoyed life to the fullest. This is a program that gives us the guidance and inspiration to follow our dreams and become the best people we can be. I would thoroughly recommend it to anyone looking for a good time and important answers to life's complicated questions.

I left Vision with the confidence and determination to integrate the lessons learned into my life at home. I have no doubt that the knowledge I acquired will strengthen my relationships with my family, friends and Hashem. I have a deeper understanding of how I learn best, as well as what simulates and inspires me to continue this process of growth. I look forward to returning to Israel in the near future to continue my journey of learning.

I went into MEOR Vision thinking about getting a taste of yeshiva life and learning more about Judaism. MEOR Vision was much more than that. I can truly say the program had a significant positive impact in my life and my perspective. With only three short weeks, I gained much clarity in my life goals and values.
