JCC Maccabi Israel
Non-denominational and pluralistic, JCC Maccabi Israel teen trips expose Jewish teens to all that is great about Israel—its culture, its history, and its people. Our programs, which are a partnership between JCC Association and Maccabi World Union, help teens to understand our past in order to build our future, create meaningful dialogue between Israeli and American teens, challenge each participant to become a better and stronger person, and truly understand the role of community in Jewish life. Our trips are fun, safe and rewarding.
Our mission is to enable every young Jew currently in 10th through 12th grades to visit Israel within the framework of an organized peer group educational program, for the purpose of strengthening, developing, and enriching his Jewish identity and identification with the Jewish people.
There are many ways for a teen to get to Israel with JMI. One of the best is to go with a group from the same community, summer camp, or join an organized continental group. Together they will experience the magic of Israel while they build ties to each other.
