Students in the Elaine and Norm Brodsky Darkaynu Programs, the only Orthodox, fully-immersed, year-in-Israel program for young adults with special needs, learn Torah and tour the country during their year in Israel while they acquire skills for future independent living. Part of the training they receive is vocational; students worked in restaurants, retail stores, a dog kennel, offices, senior centers and local grocery stores.

This year the vocational training began a bit late due to corona, but nonetheless, the connections that were made are strong. Saying goodbye to their employers and coworkers was hard, but the job skills acquired will undoubtedly be useful as the students return back home to their native countries.
