Here is the Thrive Program's description: Thrive is a magnificent fusion of academic excellence, the ultimate Israel experience, with a personal discovery. Spend a semester-abroad in Israel at Hebrew University's Rothberg [International School], and create life-lasting connections as you experience the prestige and depth of Israel with other motivated, young Jewish men and women on Thrive - the ultimate Israel experience!
Thrive is where academic goals and personal identity meet. It's where you will thrive as a Jewish student.

Personally - this past semester I had the chance to view my friends reactions to being part of the Thrive program - their enlightenment, their enthusiasm and their absolute love for the activities as well as the staff, was all something special to see. Having gone to a few of the events - such as the screening of Rama Bershtein's film "Fill The Void" together with a Q&A from the director herself - I cannot wait to become a part of the Thrive family, to explore Israel through their eyes and to merge my time at Hebrew University together with this fantastic experience.
