Israel Challenge is a non-profit ideological organization, committed to strengthening Jewish/Zionist Identity among world Jewry by way of a five-month program in Israel. We offer young people a once in a lifetime opportunity to experience Israeli culture within the framework of service and education. On this program, participants go through their own challenging and rewarding personal journeys in a group environment.
Israel Challenge offers diverse possibilities for a hands-on experience through instructive and inspirational projects. Our basic five-month curriculum is divided into three stages, allowing each participant the freedom to choose amongst a series of options for each stage. These stages include volunteering in kibbutzim, "Marva" an army basic training course, MDA (Magen David Adom), social volunteering all combined with trips and excursions throughout Israel. Israel Challenge also offer participants a series of specialized courses to choose from: Security-self Defense, Mediterranean Cuisine, Photography, Scuba Diving/Water Sports and more!
Israel Challenge offers each participant a wide array of options, giving each and every one the possibility to "choose his/her own adventure." The program is "tailor-made" to the precise necessities and interests of each participant.
