This report explores the students' decision-making processes around going to Israel and staying there during a time of crisis, how students negotiated boundaries of safety while in Israel, the various support systems that were in place for them and their families during the year, and the differences between students who completed their programs and those who left early. The report is based on narrative interviews with students who attended programs in Israel spanning the 2001-2 academic year and with program directors.
