The Renewal trip goal is to reconnect young people in recovery or impacted by an addiction with their Jewish heritage and reclaim their role as active members in the Jewish community. Besides all the traditional highlights and sightseeing, participants will also visit several recovery centers in Israel, have Israeli experts address them, and meet young Israelis who share their same addiction background and like them have recovered and are now on a different track in their lives.
