A SUMMER TO REMEMBER...
Join Passport to Israel (P2I) this summer and explore desert canyons, walk in the footsteps of history, and connect to your Jewish identity on a whole new level. P2I is your ticket to a truly hands-on journey. Our uniquely active approach to experiencing Israel is the ideal way to appreciate a country that is rich in history, spirituality, terrain and culture.
P2I PROGRAM OPTIONS
Because we realize that no two teens are alike, P2I offers three unique experiences. Each trip is three weeks in length with a 10-day optional extension program.
The Israel Journey combines a taste of Israel’s most famous sites and best kept secrets—perfect for first timers. Explore Israel’s highest mountains in the north, the tropical Red Sea beaches in the south, and everything in between. Thousands of years of history and tradition will come alive before your eyes. The journey is yours!
Trek Israel is the ultimate outdoors experience. Combining the best of Israel’s countryside with meaningful community service, the trip will challenge you physically, emotionally, and spiritually. Got the spirit for adventure? See you on the trails.
Discover the secrets of Kabbalah. Explore your Jewish identity in the Jewish homeland. Learn Hebrew. Kallah Israel brings together hands-on learning, meaningful touring, and the unforgettable experience of living and volunteering on a kibbutz. Experience Kallah Israel and expand your mind.
Stay in Israel with P2I for an extra 10 days to experience what it's like to live on a kibbutz and what it's like to serve in the Israeli Defense Force on the one-of-a-kind "Gadna" simulation program. Not to be missed!
