Epic Israel

Epic Israel is about you.

What makes you uniquely you? How can this experience in Israel be part of your epic story?  Epic Israel is an exciting new summer Israel experience open to current 10th and 11th graders who live in the greater Los Angeles area and have never been on an organized teen trip to Israel.

Offering an innovative new approach to teen Israel experiences, Epic Israel features hands-on intensives in two specialty areas:

isr@el: Exploring Israel through Digital Media

(through the lens of your camera or video camera)

Paving the Way:

Experiencing Israel through Community Service

Whether you want to capture everything on camera or help change the world, you can do it all – as you visit sacred and historic sites that make Israel so amazing, as you make new friends, and as you discover your connection to Israel and Judaism.

We’re pretty sure that experiencing Israel by doing the things that make you who you are will make this an incredible, life changing experience. Plus, your parents will appreciate that it is heavily subsidized! For more information, download our FAQs or tentative itinerary
