Taam Yisrael camel

Ta'am Yisrael: A Taste of Israel is an 8th grade educational experience in Israel designed to give the participants a meaningful, intense, emotional and focused taste of the land and their heritage through a weeklong, "hands-on" experience in Israel.

How do we fill a week? Jerusalem and Tel Aviv, archeological digs, trekking through deserts and swimming in the Dead Sea, historical sites, museums, making friends in Israel, engaging in social justice projects and much more.

Ta’am Yisrael strives to strengthen the participant’s Jewish identity while helping them build a deep connection with Israel. The program encourages students to continue their Jewish education and involvement in their post-Bar/Bat Mitzvah lives through continued engagement in Jewish learning experiences and youth/community programming.
