Dates leaving in 2017, 18th - 28th June

Birthright Israel for Students with UJS

This summer, instead of talking about Israel on campus, take campus to Israel, and learn for yourself why this is the most talked about country on the planet!

If you really want to understand Israel you have to go there, to meet the people, hear their opinions and experience a little bit of their lives.

Imagine ten days of travel that will change your life forever. Imagine a whirlwind of self-exploration, intense debate, new friends, celebrations, amazing landscapes, dynamic history, fun and adventure.

You’ll cross deserts like the ancient nomads did, you’ll float in the Dead Sea, the  lowest point on earth. You’ll visit the heart of the Start Up Nation in the fast paced modern metropolis of Tel Aviv, and you’ll go back in time thousands of years to the ancient and mystical city of Jerusalem. Throw in some great water hikes, fantastic nights out, amazing food, dynamic Israelis, engaging speakers  and whole bunch of new people from your campus or region, and the perfect summer awaits you.

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.
