I want to live in Israel for two or three years maybe longer. I will retire in a year. I'm an American Christian sharing a closeness with the people and land of Israel. I would like to study Hebrew at Ulpan Gordon in Tel Aviv. I'm somewhat proficient in Hebrew, but not able to converse efficiently yet. Then I hope to do some volunteer work.
Can I get a study visa as a retiree?
Will I need to leave the country every few months because I'll be on a 90 day visitor's visa? If so, what's the most economical way of doing this?
