    The BBYO Israel Journey is a well-balanced opportunity to explore the history, natural beauty, and modern culture of Israel. Journey from Galilee in the north to the tropical Red Sea in the south. Experience a Shabbat in Jerusalem, the lush Golan Heights, the vast Negev Desert, the Dead Sea, and the mountaintop fortress of Masada. Take part in an archaeological dig, sample the world’s best falafel, sleep under the desert stars, and experience the energy of Tel Aviv first-hand.

    Join teens from around the world for a once-in-a-lifetime summer in Israel, a three-week cross-country experience. Participants explore Jewish identity from an Israeli point of view. Along the way, walk in the footsteps of Jewish history, experience the vibrancy of modern Israeli culture, and connect with Israels colorful society. We also make time to experience Israels off-the-beaten-path charm: enjoying a bonfire on the beach, sampling unique Middle Eastern cuisine, and planting a tree in a new forest.
