During Special Interest Week, you leave your original group and spend the week with others who have also chosen your interest week option.
Totaling 50 miles, the sea-to-sea hike is no stroll around the block. Learn the geography, history and topography of Israel’s northern landscape while hiking from the Mediterranean to the Sea of Galilee. After days of incredible hiking, spend nights cooking out and camping under the starry skies on the shores of the Sea of Galilee.
Congratulations—you’ve enlisted! A week of Gadna (army training) offers you a unique opportunity to experience the Israel Defence Forces while living on an army base. If you can make it through intensive basic training, a pulse-raising physical course and army drills, there’s nothing you can’t do.
Volunteer and make a difference in an Israeli community that needs your help. Get a chance to work with both young and old, new immigrants, or animals. Spend a week immersing yourself in Israeli life and learn how to bring social action to your home community
Boker tov (good morning)! You’ll become a part of kibbutz life while visiting other kibbutzim. Wake up at sunrise to work in the fields, or cook for ten times the number of people who attended your family’s last Passover seder. Gain a genuine understanding of kibbutz life. In between “chores,” relax and enjoy this unique Israeli lifestyle.
