Israel Teen Fellowship

Overall rating: 0 based on 0 reviews

Program Description

Israel Teen Fellowship is a two week journey throughout Israel that focuses on diversity and welcomes all teenagers in 9th-12th grade. Fellows see and experience the country as a land of many faiths and cultures; one that is filled with diverse histories, stories, and traditions.

As such, Fellows meet and interact with teens from various Israeli communities, including: Jews, Arab-Israelis, Bedouins, Druze, and Baha'i. Participants try new foods together, learn about each other, and complete projects to help improve the communities they visit.

Other activities include visiting the Al Jazzar mosque and Underground Fortress in Akko, sleeping in a tree tent on the shores of the Sea of Galilee, and exploring the Ancient Bath House in Nazareth (hidden beneath a souvenir shop). Additionally, Fellows raft the Jordan River, float in the Dead Sea, ride camels, camp out in the Negev Desert, enjoy beach time in Tel Aviv, and tour Jerusalem.
