Israel Tour is an amazing opportunity to experience Israel, exploring the land from top to bottom. Whether or not you’ve been to Israel before, Tour is the perfect opportunity to discover this fascinating country and develop your understanding of Israel and Judaism. Whether this is your first or fifteenth event, you will be welcomed with open arms. This trip will give you the chance to explore the desert in the South, kayak down the Jordan River in the North, experience modern Israeli culture in Tel Aviv and discover a special spirituality in Jerusalem. LJY-Netzer Tour truly does offer something for everyone. Not only will you discover more about yourself and bond as a group, you will have the opportunity to develop your leadership skills and meet loads of new people. Generations of sixteen year olds across the UK have gone on Israel Tour and said it was the most amazing summer of their lives…so don’t miss out!

LJY-Netzer is proud that through a Liberal framework, it acknowledges and educates about unique challenges of Israel. This includes listening to and engaging with multiple narratives working for positive change in Israel from across the spectrum. Our madrichim (leaders) provide a safe space for chanichim (participants) to grapple with the challenging subjects in a sensitive manner with a variety of information.

“Volunteering in Carmiel was one of my favourite moments on the trip because it was a fun experience and has made me want to do something similar back in the UK.”

Tour Orientation- 4th-5th July

Tourientation is a two day event where the group get to meet for the first time. It is a chance for the whole group to get to know one another a little better- whether you have been on LJY-Netzer since you were 7 or this is your first event. You meet your tour leaders, along with the rest of your group, and start looking at your aims and expectations for your time in Israel. Not only do we work to bond the group with fun activities and learning, but we also go through some of the logistical aspects of tour, such as what to pack, and some of the activities we will be doing to get them really excited about their upcoming trip. We stress the importance of Tourientation for these factors, as we believe it is a great way to begin your Israel Tour Journey. It will be in a London based synagogue, specific location to be confirmed.

"I loved Israel tour because for an entire month I learned so many new and interesting things and only ever felt as though my opinions and thoughts about those things were valuable and important. I was always surrounded by like-minded and amazing people and so I never felt alone."
