Since October 7th, Jews from across the, world regardless of affiliation or background have sought out ways to give back and lift up our brothers and sisters who have been most effected. It’s this unified sense of purpose that compels us to travel to Israel and lend hands-on support where it’s most needed.

Each Onward Volunteer program, whether it’s 8 or 14 days long, is an opportunity to give back and connect during this unique time for the Jewish people.

The cost of the program is only $50 (submitted once accepted to the program).
