PHILOSOPHY Our focus is for group members to discover the incredible and diverse beauty of Israel, take part in many active outdoor recreational opportunities, learn both its ancient and modern history and to get to know its people. A trip to the "promised land" promises to be a thrilling and memorable summer - we believe in this being fun, so the program balances culture, history, and learning with adventure and play! Our program is an unaffiliated tour - we are not part of any movement. Though we are not religious all meals that are included are kosher and the group does not travel on Shabbat. We feature the best in accommodations, recreation, menus, transportation, supervision, and support! OUR PARTNER - SAFETY & SECURITY! This tour is a joint program with Oranim Educational Initiatives. Oranim has 23 years experience planning Israel trips for many thousands of students with safety & security as the #1 priority! They handle logistics, ground arrangements, and most importantly 24 hour security and monitoring of our itinerary. Oranim is coordinated with all Israeli authorities. We use private transportation and the group is always accompanied by Israeli guides, an armed medic as well as our Director and leaders. Changes in the itinerary for security reasons are carried out without hesitation.
