הקיבוץ כסביבה מחנכת לנוער יהודי מחו"ל
Oren Kibbutz Institute ulpans (Israeli schools teaching Hebrew in an immersive environment) offer young adults from around the globe who volunteer or reside at kibbutzim in Israel more than just Hebrew studies; they offer a whole Jewish experience. This research studies the effect that the educational programs of these ulpans have on the participants' Jewish identity. It finds that even secular Jewish environments are capable of producing an intense Jewish experience for the participants of these programs, though this holds true mainly for participants that arrive with rather minimal Jewish backgrounds.
