Abstract:

A great potential source of olim enters Israel at the beginning of every scholastic year in the form of thousands of English speaking, Modern Orthodox, post-high-school students. They spend a year or two studying Torah but at the end the vast majority return to their home countries. The author intends to uncover the reasons for the low numbers of olim among these students and tries to develop a curriculum for these programs to increase aliyah numbers.
