Safety & Security

Our number one priority is the safety and security of our participants. Israel Experience is committed to ensuring and maintaining a safe and secure experience for all of our participants at all times.

Each year more than 30,000 participants travel to Israel on one kind of Israel Experience or another. On Birthright Israel alone, Israel Experience brings over 1,700  participants each year, from around the world on a variety of our trips throughout Israel.

Israel Experience’s professionalism, expertise and years of experience enable us to assure our clients that they are in the best of hands.

The following are some of the steps we take to provide a safe experience in Israel:

  • Israel Experience keeps close synchronization with our in-house expert security department as well the “Situation Monitoring Room,” administered by the Israel Ministry of Education, and coordinated with the I.D.F., Israel Police and other security authorities.

  • Trip itineraries are approved weeks before the trip and re-approved daily by the Situation Monitoring Room. Itineraries will be modified to avoid any areas of potential concern.

  •  Our trips do not use public transportation and the tour bus companies and drivers that are employed by our programs are subject to Israel Experience’s strict standards.

  • Each group carries a GPS communication and tracking device to ensure that the group is always in contact with the security agency and our main office.

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.
