2018 Annual Report
The survival of the Jewish people has been a long journey ranging from the Pesach story to the holocaust. Now is the time to embrace new opportunities locally.
336 students are in Israel at the moment participating in Year 10 programs. That is 60 more than last year (which was a jump of 50 on the previous year), proving the success of the voucher system implemented by Youth 2 Israel (Y2i). Every Year 10 student in NSW/ACT/QLD, with a parent who is Jewish, is eligible for a $5,000 voucher towards an approved Israel-based educational program of five weeks or more.
The top five tips for parents to get their child ready to embrace a Year 10 Israel program. Be ready because you may need to give them a little push.
Every adventure needs a song, an anthem to remind you of the trip. Those who participated in the 2016 programs will remember a few songs fondly including this Israeli hit.
We asked some of the members of the 2017 Y2i Youth Leadership Board about their favourite Jewish food. For some, it was an easy choice, while for others it required a bit of thought. Watch the results and give us your favourite.
The momentum shift for Israel programs in Year 10 is being felt this year beyond the Jewish day schools with large increases in numbers for the rest of the community now taking effect
There was a record attendance at last week’s Youth 2 Israel Information Night, for Year 10 students who are from non-Jewish day schools. More than 70 families came along to Maroubra Synagogue, the venue for the annual event, where students and parents learn about the end of year Israel program.
Parents are the key decision makers when it comes to signing up for a Year 10 Israel program, particularly for students not in a Jewish Day School. The information night is designed to address the many questions we know you have, without any obligation to sign-up.
The 2017 group promise to set new records as registrations open for the first Information night, aimed at students outside the Jewish day schools. The increasing number of $5,000 vouchers granted to every student by Youth 2 Israel (Y2i) has driven a surge in the popularity of Year 10 Israel programs.
