Horizons: The GHIS Summer Program of Learning and Discovery

Horizons is not your standard four-week summer program in Israel. It has been designed for curious, motivated and passionate teens of any faith or nationality, aged 14 to 16, who are seeking to experience the rich diversity of life in this region.

Participants learn the foundations of Arabic and Hebrew, along with practical listening and conflict resolution skills. Horizons offers unique opportunities to meet and befriend local youth in Israel, as they join the program—a perfect opportunity for English-speakers to practice their new language skills and for the locals to practice their English. And, of course, the “must sees” of any Israel program will be incorporated: the Dead Sea, Jerusalem, Masada, Tel Aviv and more.

Participants return home, not only with the basics of two languages, but more knowledgeable, independent and confident, having had the experience of a lifetime!

“Thank you for everything you did with our kids. You made so much effort and we are very grateful. It was a new experience for me as a mom. You helped us to see the ‘other side’ in a different and interesting way. And we so appreciated your constant updates. Looking forward to seeing you again next year – inshallah.”

“Itamar has enjoyed Horizons very much, and would have been happy if the program had continued much longer. Itamar can be shy and introverted so I was pleased that he agreed to participate. It’s amazing how he opened up and how much confidence he gained. Thank you so much. We have one very happy child!”
