Organized by Masa Israel participants, Clean the Land is a social, environmental initiative with two simple components: a coordinated, annual, nation-wide trash pickup day; and a mission to educate communities about recycling, sustainability and environmental protection.
The initiative aims to not only clean up the Land of Israel, but to instill within its people a respect for the land and to refresh their connection to it.
We invite you to join us by leading a Clean Team or by joining one.
SIGN UP to receive an information packet with instructions on what to do on the actual Trash Pickup Day (18 May 2012), as well as trash bags and protective gloves.
Join UJA/Federation and the synagogues of Westport, Weston, Wilton and Norwalk for a special celebration of Israel’s 64th birthday, and meet Masa Israel representatives to learn about opportunities in Israel.
There will also be food, items to buy, music and a lecture.
The information sessions will provide a broad overview of the available Israel Programs and answer questions about Masa Grants and Scholarships. Programs include traditional gap-year programs such as the Shnat program through the Zionist youth movements, Israel by Choice (IBC) and AUJS Aviv; career training programs in all different fields; volunteering opportunities; religious and academic study programs; and more.
