Israel Programs

Experience the Best of Israel

When choosing an Israel experience, you want to have it all – a well planned trip that combines discovery of the land, exploration of Jewish culture, and the opportunity to give back. And on top of all that, a fun time that you’ll never forget.

That’s where Young Judaea comes in! We have more than 60 years of experience creating unparalleled trips for teens, college students and young adults from diverse Jewish backgrounds.

The best part of experiencing Israel with Young Judaea is that the journey doesn’t end when the program is over. You will always be a part of the YJ family and our huge network of thousands of passionate alumni. Plus, you can return to Israel on another YJ Israel program because let’s be honest: there’s really no such thing as too many trips to the Jewish homeland!

Now go read about the best trip you’ll ever take. See you in Israel! Yalla. Let’s go!
