Special Interest Week
Do something really different for five days and explore Israel in a uniquely Israeli way! Scuba dive in the Red Sea at Eilat, one of the most beautiful diving locations in the world. Dig up the past on an archeological dig. Hike 50 miles from the Mediterranean to the Sea of Galilee. Become part of Kibbutz life and milk the cows or cook for hundreds of people! There are so many exciting and out-of-the-ordinary ways you can spend the week. Imagine telling your friends back at home that you spent a week living on an army camp, doing IDF basic training!
Get ready for the greatest beach extravaganza! During Maccabiah you will compete and preform, cheer and sing, dance and show that team pride with all our groups and our sister movement FZY. Jam packed with events, this two day blast will see you bonding and sleeping out under the stars! Are you ready?
