Mossad 101 (Hebrew: המדרשה‎, romanizedHaMidrasha, lit. The Seminary) is an Israeli television action drama series that premiered on Channel 2 on October 31, 2015. The series follows a fictional training course for the Israeli intelligence agency the Mossad and focuses on the humane side of its agents and their personal experiences.[1]

It reveals different methods to track down, sort and recruit successful agents and shows the moral difficulties of this occupation.

The series became available on Netflix on 10 October 2016.[2]

The second season premiered on 26 October 2017, initially on Israel's Channel 2, and from November 2017 on Reshet's new standalone channel, Reshet 13.

Plot[edit]

The series revolves around a secret Mossad compound called 'HaMidrasha', which is surrounded by surveillance cameras and is equipped with technological devices. The compound operates a training course in which 13 trainees are sent to complicated missions in order to test their suitability for the occupation, and their improvisation, seduction and impersonation abilities.

Yonna, the commander of the course, criticizes the mediocrity of Mossad's agents and demands from the new trainees a higher level of execution. He decides to create a new training program to test his trainees via unusual and radical situations, in which, apart from excellence, Yonna demands a creative "out of the box" thinking.
