Cost: $3,000 including airfare*

Discover the places, sites, and people that make Israel one of the most incredible countries in the world. You’ll connect with friends new and old, engage with Israeli peers, all the while having the adventure of a lifetime.

Gesher is an exciting, three and a half week summer Israel trip for 11th graders at one amazing cost. You’ll see all the top sites and much more while you spend time in Israel’s most famous places as well as those off the beaten path, learning about their historical and modern significance and discovering amazing new places.

Explore Israel’s breathtaking nature from north to south as you experience heritage and history in ancient Jerusalem, modern innovation and non-stop culture in Tel Aviv, and so much more for three and a half eye-opening weeks. Gesher is so much more than a trip to Israel – it’s the opportunity to truly connect with the country and create lifelong memories. Whether at the top of Masada, floating in the Dead Sea, navigating through the Negev desert, or strolling the colorful marketplaces, you’ll find lots of things to love about Israel!  We are proud to be part of the RootOne Initiative in helping more Jewish American teens than ever have an amazing Israel experience, and the total cost of Gesher Israel – including airfare – is $3,000!
