Host an Info Session

Info sessions are great ways to share the opportunities and programs of Young Judaea’s Israel programs to youth and their parents who are searching for a true person-to-person interaction. From an in-home invitation to a coordinated program with our field representatives, you have the power to share the genuine impact that Young Judaea has. Please email us if you are interested in hosting an info session.
