Why Is This Trip Unique?

We believe that experiencing Israel should be more than just taking a tour. The Israel Free Spirit experience is a hands-on journey where participants gain a rich appreciation for the beauty of Israel and a deeper connection to our global Jewish community as well as our vibrant and enduring Jewish homeland. Perhaps most importantly, our participants form a lifetime of new friendships with fellow travelers and Israeli peers who will accompany and enrich their experience. Assuredly, there’s no better way to experience Israel than with Israelis by your side.

Israel Free Spirit wants to give you the greatest staff possible on your trip. That’s why in addition to the Israeli tour educator, you have dynamic and relatable American staff with extensive leadership, knowledge on Israel, and informal education experience. Our team is comprised of Jewish educators (collegiate and young professional), JSU & NCSY staff, and Taglit-Birthright Israel alumni.

Our trips are designed for participants with an interest in experiencing Israel to its fullest. What unifies all of the Israel Free Spirit programs is our basic philosophy of providing an active, spiritual and meaningful encounter in Israel.  Of course, the trip itinerary is full of overflowing with simple pleasures and an overall spirit of adventure.

When it comes to experiencing 3500 years of Jewish wisdom, history, culture and adventure; no one reveals Israel with its depth and spirit better than the Israel Free Spirit program. If you want to explore the secrets and tap into the vast pleasures of the amazing Jewish people, our history and our religion, then this program is for you!
