As our students prepare for college and their next stage of life, we want to provide them with tools to dive into Jewish life on campus and in the wider world—with knowledge, self-assurance, and joy. For this reason, each year in February, our clergy team leads a group of 12th grade students on a week-long trip to Israel, as research and testimonies show that travel to Israel is one of the most powerful ways to create formative Jewish memories, deepen relationships with clergy and community, and form a personal connection with our Jewish homeland.
By empowering students with knowledge supported by personal experiences, we will enable them to embark on the next stage of Jewish life with pride, a strong relationship with Israel, and the ability to participate in their campuses’ complex discourse on Israel.
