Pre-Departure

I think one of the best ways to prepare for going to Israel is to look at a few different cultural aspects of the place. I recommend reading Start-up Nation: The Story of Israel’s Economic Miracle by Dan Senor and Saul Singer because it provides an overview of a whole different aspect of Israel that is not commonly known. Definitely watch the video posted on NYU in Tel Aviv study abroad site because it’s short and sweet and will give a quick overview of the place you are going to be spending the next 4 months of your life (http://www.nyu.edu/global/global-academic-centers/telaviv.html). Finally, you can check out some Eytan Fox movies since he’s a professor at NYU in Tel Aviv and a widely known movie director.
