MASA enables thousands of Jewish youth to spend a semester or a year in Israel in any of over 160 programs, helping them build a life-long relationship with Israel and a firm commitment to Jewish life.

MASA provides young Jewish adults with connections to programs, grants and scholarships towards program fees, as well as support, activities, workshops and resources while here in Israel.
Since 2003, MASA has been a catalyst in the developing new and exciting, quality programs which express the multi-faceted experience of Israel.
MASA is the culmination of dream expressed by Ariel Sharon that all Jews should spend a semester to a year in Israel. Officially established by the government of Israel and the Jewish Agency for Israel in 2003, MASA is your gateway to over 150 long-term programs in Israel. MASA is managed by the "MASA Company Ltd.", an Israel-based non-profit organization located in Jerusalem. The MASA Company oversees all affiliated programs, designs marketing campaigns, provides financial assistance to participants and organizes enrichment programs for participants while in Israel.
