Sde Eliyahu Religious Kibbutz
Kibbutz Sde Eliyahu is a Modern Orthodox Religious Kibbutz located in the Bet Shean valley, just south of the town of Bet Shean near the border
The kibbutz is still fully communal and collective and all the industries are agricultural based and many organic farming methods are used.
Ulpan Sde Eliyahu is different from most Ulpanim because we offer the opportunity to learn in a religious community. For students who wish, we can also arrange additional religious (Torah) classes. Whether you are already observant or simply looking to grow religiously, our Modern Orthodox environment provides a beautiful, pastoral environment for work and study.
Participants live in a dormitory adjacent to the Ulpan building. We house two-to-three people per room on single-sex floors. Each room comes with A/C, closets, linens, individual reading lamps, and a table and chairs. Bathroom facilities are located on each floor.
Our Multi-lingual helpful Ulpan dorm mother, Devora, has an office/storeroom directly below the Ulpan classroom, where she keeps fresh linens, work clothes, and other items to help you settle in.
