Israel provides personalised learning opportunities and does not discriminate against any child no matter which school they attend, no matter their background or how much they know about Judaism. We want to share some of the insights from students as they partipate in the 2016 programs with BJE - Emet Israel, Emanuel - Chavayah and Masada and Moriah - IST
All three 2016 Programs, Chavayah (Emanuel), Emet Israel (BJE) and IST (Moriah and Masada) have now arrived in Israel and made their way to the Kotel.
"Why Be Jewish?" - the video put together by Youth 2 Israel, was inspired by a conversation with donors, so we asked 15-17-year-old students why be Jewish?
"Why Be Jewish?" Is the theme behind a new video released by Youth 2 Israel. The video takes a closer look at this question and lets our youth give their perspective, featuring students from a variety of schools.
“Zionism is a passion of mine and I believe that my experiences in Israel have not only shaped my beliefs but have inspired me to get actively involved in the community at home in order to ensure that every young adult is afforded the opportunity to go to Israel. Y2i enables young people to connect with their Jewish and Zionistic identities, helping shape the future leaders of our community.”read more about Jessica
“These programs are a life changing experience that invigorates and inspires participants and their families. Students return to their community willing to be involved, make an impact, and ultimately ensuring that the Jewish Community is in a stronger position than ever before.”read more about Jodi
“Israel has always played a pivotal role in shaping my Jewish Identity. I was an active member of Habonim Dror and participated in their 12 month shnat program after school. My emotional connection and love for Israel grew through my time spent there. Y2i will shape a stronger and more committed community, as we enrich the Jewish and Zionistic lives of our young people. With two young children of my own, I can't wait for them to experience Israel, and continue their journey of Jewish connections.”read more about Rachel
