youth in global countries with the past, present and future of the state of Israel.

The programme takes youngsters to various sites in Israel, such as Massadathe Dead SeaJerusalemTel-AvivSafedRosh-PinnaEilatHaifa and more, in order to learn, see, taste, hear, feel and get connected to their Jewish roots.

Current Political, Demographical and Socio-Economical facets are also being discussed with the young visitors.

As of year 2012, some 300,000 youngsters have joined Israel via this programme.
