British Bnei Akiva gap year students are to be offered the opportunity to work with Jewish communities in Brazil for the first time.
BA’s Hachshara programme, which prepares students for leadership roles, plans to send trainees to help run youth activities in Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro.
Around 30 participants are expected to spend a fortnight in Brazil, probably at the end of next year’s programme in June 2011.
There are around 96,000 Jews in the South American country.
