SPEND 3 WEEKS IN ISRAEL ON A SERVICE LEARNING ADVENTURE!
Crafted in response to the communal needs for Jewish teen engagement, Israel advocacy and community service, on this journey, teens learn how the history of the land and its people allowed Israel to become a global leader in innovative social and environmental approaches, and how these approaches are rooted in the values of Judaism. Roots Israel is based on an expansion of Jewish National Fund’s successful Alternative Break and Volunteer Vacation models. Participants plant trees, spend time on farms, work with disabled soldiers in the Negev, and help beautify a Bedouin community. Additionally, following the Alexander Muss High School in Israel model of experiential learning, the trip integrates educational elements, teaching the rich history that made the land of Israel what it is today.
"I learned so much about my second home, Israel, and made unbreakable bonds with new friends from around the world. I recommend Roots Israel to anyone who wants to become more independent, social, and connect to their Jewish heritage. This was the best summer of my life."
