Teen Israel Scholarships

The Opportunity of a Lifetime for Your Teen

Traveling to Israel is a life-changing experience for Jewish teens! Youths returning from Israel share insightful stories about the profound impact of their experiences, how their Jewish identity became stronger, and the lasting connection they made with our Jewish homeland. As Miriam said after her Israel travels: “I know my relationship with Israel is just beginning, and I’m so grateful that this trip got to be the start of that.”
