Jerusalem Fellowships is an incredible three-week exploration of Israel and Jewish identity for students ages 19-26. It’s an ideal program for students looking for a meaningful first visit to Israel or for alumni of Birthright and other trips who are excited to go back. The JF program uniquely mixes the adventure and fun of touring Israel with the inspiration and meaning of learning about Judaism. Participants spend their mornings in the Old City engaged in a wide variety of inspiring discussions and sessions on topics including Jewish Philosophy, Israel Advocacy, Science and Religion, Dating and Romance, Leadership Building, and more. Afternoons are spent touring the country, volunteering, and enjoying amazing activities such as kayaking, ATV-ing, and rappelling. Most evenings are free, giving participants the opportunity to relax, visit friends or family, experience the Israeli nightlife, or continue the day’s discussions with their peers and staff. Most appealing about this extraordinary trip is the low price tag of $499 all-included. Jerusalem Fellowships has been described as “life-changing” by many of its tens of thousands of past participants from around the world.
