Pride in Israel

Young Judaea is proud to introduce PRIDE Israel! A brand new, one of a kind trip to Israel for Jewish LGBTQ youth and allies. From meeting and collaborating with prominent members of the Israeli LGBTQ community, to learning firsthand the successes and challenges faced by LGBTQ youth in Israel, you’ll experience a country at the forefront of LGBTQ culture.

PRIDE Israel offers an open and welcoming environment  to explore all that Israel has to offer, including the classic experiences of a summer Israel tour: hiking Masada at sunrise, rafting down the Jordan river, visiting the Western Wall, floating in the Dead Sea, and participating in the vibrant culture of Tel Aviv, Jerusalem, Haifa, and more.

Paying special attention to the organizations, individuals, and sites that comprise the country’s strong LGBTQ identity, PRIDE Israel participants will visit places like the Jerusalem Open House, Bar Noar, The Tel Aviv Gay Center, and the JNF Pride Forest, meetings with IGY (Israel Gay Youth), the LGBTQ Orthodox and Palestinian communities, and much more!

Join us this summer and show your Pride in Israel!
