Our Mission: To inspire American Jews’ life-long engagement with Israel and the Jewish People. Young Judaea is America’s oldest Zionist youth movement, turning spirited Jewish youth of diverse backgrounds and orientations into engaged leaders and inspired activists with a life-long commitment to Israel, Jewish life and tikkun olam (repairing the world). Through immersive informal and experiential education, Young Judaea fosters a sense of value and love for Jewish tradition and ritual and pride in the Jewish people, Israel and being Jewish.
Young Judaea is the very first Gap Year program in Israel and they have made many contributions to Israeli society.
They are a perfect balance of fun, freedom, structure, meaning and adventure.
They celebrate their students' individuality and create opportunities for everyone to explore the things they love whether it's through internships or volunteering.
