AACI Continuing Education
"Learning doesn’t stop when one gets old. One gets old when one stops learning”.
It was on that premise that AACI Continuing Education was initiated in 1986 and continues till today, marking 29 years of intensive, on-site Study Vacations, reaching out to all English speakers, veteran Olim who have been living in Israel for several decades, Olim Hadashim - more recent immigrants, and tourists.
Participants in the 4 day Study Vacations range in age from the 50’s through the 90’s. 
Continuing Education has run over 150 Study Vacation programs over the years covering a wide range of topics, taking us to many different places throughout Israel – north, south, east, west and center. We have heard from expert lecturers and individuals who share personal experiences that are a part of the country’s history. We have visited new and unique sites that help increase our knowledge and broaden our understanding of the land and the different people who live here; Jews, Arabs, Moslems, Christians, Bedouins, Druze, Circassians.  We have also visited ancient historic places, nature reserves, museums, universities. Topics covered in the past included archaeology, ecology, alternative energy sources, water recycling, organic farming, and the environment. We have learned about the political, social and economic issues and challenges, the arts, culture, and technological advances and discoveries.
Information about these programs is published in all the regional bulletins and in the AACI Electronic Newsletter (Click here to subscribe to newsletter).
The study vacation program is open to all English-speakers, members of AACI, including tourists who are members.
