Revivim is an innovative honours programme of the Hebrew University, Israel’s foremost centre of advanced learning and research that targets Israel’s brightest and best future educators. Each year, a rigorous selection committee accepts only a limited number of students, who are required to maintain a high academic average to remain in the programme. Revivim offers these excellent students the opportunity to complete a B.A. and M.A. in Jewish Studies, as well as teacher certification, in four concentrated years of study. Revivim students commit to teach in the secular Israeli school system for a minimum of four years following their graduation.
The programme is a response to a challenge: in today’s Israel, high school students are often unfamiliar with basic Jewish sources and question their relationship to Jewish culture and values. In the face of this growing existential crisis, the Hebrew University took up the Government’s urgent challenge to re-introduce Israeli youth to their rich heritage in order to strengthen their Jewish identity and enable their active participation in the future of the Jewish people.
In schools across Israel, Revivim’s graduates create positive experiences that allow young adults to discover the diverse and inspiring nature of Jewish history, and develop a meaningful, creative relationship with Jewish culture. Currently, over 180 Hebrew University Revivim graduates are teaching in more than 100 schools throughout Israel
