VISION STATEMENT OF: ISRAEL EXPERIENCE®

Our programs combine the fun of touring with hands-on learning experiences. Programs include visits to historical and religious sites, exposure to the diverse aspects of Israeli society, nature hikes and studies, adventure activities, encounters (mifgashim) with Israeli peers and more.

Educational and adventure components are interwoven and integrated in order to involve all the senses, to encourage an emotional as well as an intellectual response, and to stimulate participants to think, feel, question, argue and hopefully to act. Open discussions are encouraged. Through on-site seminars provided by knowledgeable and experienced tour guides, through simulation games, drama, creative arts, seminars and encounters, conducted by experts in various fields, our participants confront the issues facing contemporary Jewish youth. Themes and issues: Jewish identify and Jewish sovereignty in Israel, the historical continuity of the Jewish people, the multifaceted aspects of Israeli society, Israel-Arab relations, Judaism symbols and values, the Holocaust, Shabbat, Hebrew, Jerusalem, mutual responsibility, the relationship between Diaspora and Israeli youth, Israeli culture.
