The vision statement of Israel Free Spirit (IFS) trip is a ten-day Taglit Birthright-Israel experience which emphasizes the spiritual connection between the land of Israel, the people of Israel, contemporary Israel and our vibrant Jewish tradition. We know you have a lot of choices and we take your “Free Gift” as seriously as you do by maximizing every moment of your experience.
Our vision is to share the magic of Israel with young Jewish adults of all backgrounds and interests. We believe that intimate encounters with the People of Israel in their communities and the land of Israel through activities such as volunteering, hiking, biking, kayaking, etc. present unique and unforgettable opportunities. Through these active learning experiences, our participants are able to appreciate the complexities of Israel while forming true friendships that last a lifetime.
On an Israel Free Spirit trip you’ll hike Israel’s lush landscapes, spend time with Israelis and Israeli soldiers, see artistic and archeological treasures and journey to the Kotel, “The Wall” the sacred remnant from our Holy Temple built by King Solomon thousands of years ago.
The “Israel Free Spirit” trip provides you with an enchanting and breathtaking experience. Israel Free Spirit offers different types of 10-day trips to accommodate participants of varying backgrounds. Most of our trips are designed for participants with an interest in experiencing Israel to its fullest. Some of our trips offer unique opportunities for Developmentally Disabled, 12 Step Participants, Single Gender, Religious and more. Our basic philosophy of providing an active, spiritual and meaningful encounter in Israel unifies all of these Israel Free Spirit programs, and we're greatly looking forward to sharing it with you!
