There are many ways for an American teen to get to Israel. One of the best is to go with a group of other teens from the same community or join an organized program with teens from across the country that offers the values, opportunities and safety you are looking for. Together they will experience the magic of Israel while building ties to each other. Non-denominational and pluralistic, JCC Maccabi Israel exposes Jewish teens to all that is great about Israel—its culture, its history, and its people. Our programs helps teens understand our past in order to build our future, creates meaningful dialogue between Israeli and American teens, challenges each participant to become a better and stronger person, and to truly understand the role of community in Jewish life. Our trips are fun, safe and rewarding!
The overseas program at Birkat Moshe is designed to allow qualified students from abroad to take full advantage of the Yeshiva's unique educational environment. Rather than being provided with an alternate track of studies, international students are fully integrated, both educationally and socially, into the regular Israeli program. Overseas students study in Israeli lessons and usually maintain a minimum of three daily study groups with Israeli students. They also participate in the wide variety of optional classes that the Yeshiva offers.
