How powerful can a trip to Israel be? When it’s part of a yearlong Israel360 experience, there’s no limit to its power and impact.
Gather as a group to prepare for this unique travel experience. Then take off on a 10-day immersive adventure with your peers. Experience Israel through its history, culture, politics, food, music, religion and much, much more. Afterwards, regroup back in Philly to reflect on your experiences and strengthen your connections with the Jewish Federation and each other.
What You Will Gain
Israel360 exposes you to multiple perspectives on Israeli current events, trains you to advocate for Israel, and prepares you to use your learning experiences to speak up on Israel´s behalf when you return. You’ll emerge from the yearlong process with a network of new friends, a deeper understanding of Jewish Federation’s role in Philadelphia, Israel and overseas, and an even stronger Jewish identity.
Thanks to a generous subsidy from the Jewish Federation, the price of this experience is $360.
