Discover Israel! Discover Yourself!
Discover Israel from North to South and West to East. Participants visit all the major and some off-the-beaten path sites of historic, spiritual and archaeological significance. YJ Discovery participants will have the unique experience of being immersed in the rich culture of Israel. During this extensive 4 week program, participants will have plenty of time to explore the ins and outs of the land, Israeli society and culture, and gain a deeper understanding of the life of an Israeli. This program offers a longer period of time in Israel for a more in depth discovery of the land and people.
Our Comprehensive Program also includes:
- Tiyulim (hikes) We will take you on many tiyulim in beautiful nature reserves and throughout the different landscapes of Israel including the rolling hills of the Golan Heights, the awe-inspiring views of the Negev Desert, the Galilee, the coastal plain and the Jerusalem corridor. You’ll explore caves, walk through rivers and waterfalls, cook a delicious Middle Eastern dinner by the campfire, appreciate the beautiful nature under the stars, and enjoy the natural wonders of Israel!.
- Seminars Your tsevet (staff) and a number of guest educators will prepare evening workshops on topics including special seminars on the Peace Process, Israeli politics, Israel-Diaspora relations, Israeli society, and much more.
- Fun Activities Here are only a few examples of the fun we’re going to have: water parks, rappelling, swimming in the Mediterranean Sea, Dead Sea and Red Sea (Eilat), rafting on the Jordan river, parties, camel rides, and more! Take part in Maccabiah!
- Israeli Culture Almost every day participants will have an activity involving modern Israeli culture. We’ll listen to modern Israeli music, meet with Israeli kids, visit army bases, learn some slang, and learn to ask the bus driver to turn up the radio!
