MOMENTUM

The MOMentum Yearlong Journey empowers women to connect to Jewish values, engage with Israel, take action, and foster unity, without uniformity. It includes a profound, personal 8-day experience in Israel, during which women explore the Jewish homeland, take in inspiring Jewish wisdom, and join a global Jewish sisterhood. Back home, women channel their energy and passion personally, professionally, and communally, and continue their journey through educational and leadership programs.

ISRAELNOW

IsraelNow is an 8 day educational trip to Israel designed to give 8th graders an immersive, emotional, and memorable taste of our homeland. The trip provides the opportunity for teens to explore their Jewish heritage through a week-long, “hands-on” experience.
IsraelNow serves as a launchpad to establish a relationship with Israel, become more involved in the local Jewish community, and engage in Jewish life throughout their high school years and beyond. 
This transformational experience lays the groundwork for a young person to develop into an active member of the Jewish community, a lover of Israel, and an increased enrollment in both formal and informal Jewish education and programming during high school.
