    Extend the core Israel Journey program with an enrichment week. During the first part, participants choose from either a "Sea-to-Sea Hike" or a "Culture & Innovation Tour." The second part of the week is dedicated to living in and supporting a local community through a series of service projects. This program allows Jewish teens from around the world to experience a three-week cross-country experience from the Golan Heights in the north to the tropical Red Sea in the far south. 

    Walk in the footsteps of Jewish history, experience the vibrancy of modern Israeli culture, and connect with Israel's colorful society throughout visits to all of Israels most important sites: ancient Jerusalem, contemporary Tel Aviv, the Galilee, the Negev Desert, the Dead Sea and the heights of Masada, plus off-the-beaten-path charm. This program includes an additional week-long elective and service learning component. Participants explore Jewish identity from an Israeli point of view.
