On the website for Siach there is a quote from one student saying that Siach is the best program for those grappling with their Jewish identity, although I could never imagine a bunch of parents of off the derech kids sending their children their for their “year” in Israel. Instead they would probably send them somewhere like Niveh or Ner Jake in order to let them “live out” their drug and partying ways.
Siach was made for students who do not fit a particular mold. I wish I knew of these kinds of programs when I was looking into going for my year in Israel- I chose college instead because why would I want to spend my year in Israel learning the same stuff I just spent 15 years of life learning? I am always bothered by that- Israel should be fun, not a drag.
