    ILSI is a leadership program that combines educational touring, leadership learning, interactive and engaging seminars, and meaningful community service. Come away with a fuller understanding of Jewish history and an appreciation for the complexity of modern Israel. This program covers the highlights essential to a first time experience in Israel: Jerusalem, Masada, the Dead Sea, the Negev Desert, the Galilee, the Golan, the Carmel Mountains, Haifa, and Tel Aviv. 

    Connect with Israel on a deeper level by centering the story of Jewish people in Israel, using each destination as a classroom and stage. While traveling with Jewish peers from around the world, participants have the chance to interact with artists, religious figures, innovators, and leaders. ILSI also emphasizes the stories of Jewish leaders through the ages to provide leadership role models, informing our present and future, as well as discussions about the modern state of Israel.
