Summer Educators Mission to Israel
Experience Israel Through an Educator's Lens
• Learn about Eco-Zionism™ and the connection between Judaism, Israel, and the environment
• Tour JNF sites, heritage sites, and historical sites of the Jewish people
• Attend workshops, lectures, and discussions on the current challenges in Israel education
• Gain exposure to JNF’s educational activities and materials
• Network with 200+ educators from around the world
Educators from Jewish Day Schools, supplemental religious schools, Jewish camps, youth groups, and other Jewish school settings. Preference will be given to those educators who work with middle and high school students.
We continue to closely monitor safe travel protocols related to COVID-19 and plan to run this mission in compliance with all health and safety standards. In the event that this mission is canceled due to travel restrictions, we will contact you with an alternative plan.

Each participant must commit to the implementation of at least two JNF programs during the school year—one for Tu BiShvat and the other at their discretion—and also run a tree campaign for Tu BiShvat. Programs can be based on anything relating to JNF’s work in Israel (Community Building, Disabilities & Special Needs, Zionist Education & Advocacy, Forestry & Green Innovations, Heritage Sites, Research & Development, or Water Solutions). Educators from the same school may complete projects together.
Participants are expected to share their experiences on social media while they’re on the trip, and write and/or speak about the trip when they return, at their school and in their community.
