Where's The Meaning

Helping to Give Back, One Onion at a Time

Our Israel Journey Plus trip provides our participants with the chance to connect to their history, to celebrate their future and to explore their Jewish identity. However, more important then the impact that Israel has on our teens, is the impact that our teens have on Israel. Israel Journey Plus includes 24 hours of community service.

Making a community on the trip

community |kəˈmyoōnitē| noun ( pl. -ties) 
"a feeling of fellowship with others, as a result of sharing common attitudes, interests, and goals"

Shalom To All

Frequently, we look backwards during the final day of a program. We recall our journey behind us. We smile at our most rewarding moments, and we laugh at the moments gone horribly wrong.

Hola From Spain!

Hola! We finally made it to Espana! On the plane ride over we made lots of new friends both from our group and people sitting near by. We are continually encouraged to speak spanish by the locals, which is fine with all of us. It's definitely fun trying to communicate with others this way.
