The German-Israeli Exchange Network

MyGIX is the network for everyone who is passionate about German-Israeli exchange.


Sharing worlds

You have had a great youth exchange experience? Tell us about it! Wondering what volunteering in Germany or Israel is really like? Insiders answer you! MyGIX is the place where we can discuss what is important to us: experiences that connect us. Topics that interest us. Worlds that we share.

Connecting with people

You want to stay in touch with your new friends from the youth exchange? On MyGIX you can start your own group. If your experiences in Israel or Germany happened a while ago, you can find old companions again and invite them. You want to learn Hebrew, Arabic or German? Find a tandem partner!

A digital flea market where all small and big things around the German-Israeli exchange can be offered. You are looking for a language tandem or specific learning material? Here you will find what you are looking for. Even if you are seeking for an internship, a job or a room in the other country, the community on MyGIX will help you.

  • 🎉 20 years Johannes Rau Fellowship Program 🎈

    The scholarship programme goes back to a suggestion by then Federal President Johannes Rau during his state visit to Israel in February, 2000. Since then, every year 20 Israeli students are invited to Germany. They qualify by way of an essay contest and a personal interview organised by the German Embassy in Tel Aviv. This way, over the past 20 years about 400 young people have been given the opportunity to get their own impression
    of Germany today – and to get talking to young Germans.

    READ SOME OF THEIR STORIES HERE (in English and German)!

  • My favorite Jewish-Kurdish-Iraqi dish in Israel is Kubbeh Chamusta soup. It’s a soup containing little semolina-balls filled with meat or a vegetarian alternative. They come either in an Beet soup or in a green soup with leek, zucchini and lemon. It’s the tastiest thing in the world and easy to find in Jerusalem. In Tel Aviv though, I found it harder to find it. Last time I’ve been there I ate it at the Hatikva Market. Do you know other places in Tel Aviv for a good Kubbeh soup?
    In the picture: A homemade version of it when I missed it too much. 💔🥣
    Looking forward to your tips!
