Experience Israel and be forever changed
Travel to Israel is more than a vacation — it’s often a deeply meaningful, personally transformational experience. The young adults who have this experience through The Associated come back with a new or renewed sense of Jewish identity and a passion for Israel and its people. Opportunities to serve, study and work are balanced with social and cultural experiences that make Israel an extension of home.
