Going on a Year 10 Israel trip is a once in a life time opportunity to explore, live and breathe the magic of Israel. While there may be some nervousness or anxiety about going, rest assured this is totally normal and you are not alone in these thoughts. There is far more to be gained by participating in a Year 10 Israel trip than you could ever imagine.

Why Go

Students and parents often ask what can be taken from the Y2i experience. Y2i Israel programs provide students with an opportunity for self-development, exploration of their Jewish heritage and the chance to make new friends. Here are 6 reasons why you should go on a Year 10 Israel program.



Check out some of the photos and video from past years, including what goes on at Y2i Day, so you know what to expect.


Y2i Day

An annual highlight for our Israel program participants is the Y2i Community Day. Thanks to the generous support of Keren Hayesod – UIA and the JNF, all program participants, teachers and madrichim, come together and celebrate being in Israel as representatives of the active youth within the Sydney Jewish community.


“My experience in Israel during year 10 was truly transformative. It opened my eyes up to so many possibilities – my Jewish identity, my role in the Jewish community and my connection to Israel. Four years later, my relationship with Israel and Judaism continues to blossom. My passion for Jewish education has been fostered through my involvement in BJE and their camps, and my love for Israel has been nurtured through my role on the executive committee of AUJS at my university. The trip is one that shouldn’t be missed – it surely changed my life, and will change yours too.”
