During the Seven Months (July and August) there are five option components.

During this time participants can choose to do volunteer work in Ethiopia, Marva The Israeli Army Experience, Magen David Adom Ambulance and First Aid Course, Yeshiva  Jewish learning in Yeshivat Tora Betzion and Camp Kimama Israel International Summer Camp.

The program provides the participants with preparation and enrolment to the different options, transportation, accommodation, a group weekend, insurance and the continual accompaniment of the program staff.



Mar’va (The Israeli Army Experience)

Mar’va is a 7-8 week intensive  program providing  the participants with an insight into the compulsory  army service that  is required of Israelis of the same age. The program begins with simulated ‘basic training’, followed by continuous learning and touring. Participants will live on an army base and will experience real Israeli army training. They are taught about  Israeli culture  and the impact of the army on Israeli society. The course is physically demanding, but also has a large focus on learning and understanding the army, an integral component of Israeli society. Marva dates:  TBC

*It is important to note that  IBC participants will not be involved in any real

life combat  situations during  Mar’va.
