Join Horizons this summer for 3 weeks of touring, leadership and friendship

Participants, both international youth and Jewish and Arab youth from Israel, will together travel the country making life-long friends!
Horizons is not your standard summer program in Israel. It has been designed for open-minded teens of any faith or nationality, aged 15 and 16, who are seeking to experience the rich diversity of life in this region.
Horizons stands out with its emphasis on, not only travelling and seeing Israel, but gaining a much better appreciation of the country, its people and culture.

More Information

Participants will be based at the Givat Haviva campus, 40 minutes north of Tel Aviv and will include overnight stays when travelling further afield.

Travelling the length and breadth of Israel begins following the orientation period. Tours will incorporate the ‘must see’ and less known sites.

“Thank you for everything you did with our kids. You made so much effort and we are very grateful. It was a new experience for me as a mom. You helped us to see the ‘other side’ in a different and interesting way. And we so appreciated your constant updates. Looking forward to seeing you again next year – inshallah.”

“Itamar has enjoyed Horizons very much, and would have been happy if the program had continued much longer. Itamar can be shy and introverted so I was pleased that he agreed to participate. It’s amazing how he opened up and how much confidence he gained. Thank you so much. We have one very happy child!”
