Israel Option

Spend your first year of college studying at a seminary in Israel while earning credit back home.

The Touro College Israel Option offers students up to 36 credits toward their bachelor’s degree after completing a year in Israel. LCW has partnered with 43 post-secondary women’s seminaries in Israel, and LCW faculty and deans regularly visit participating seminaries, so support is always close at hand.
