Our goal for students is to experience Israel through immersive trips, education and engagement programs in order to be in personal relationship with Israel.

Israel Uncovered

Due to COVID-19, we do not anticipate hosting winter 2020-21 Israel Uncovered Trip. If you are interested in registering for a trip in the future, please email Bar Cohen to meet and learn more. Below describes what a trip is actually like – take a read! The Israel Uncovered Mission educates student leaders to build enduring partnerships with a diverse array of student organizations through constructive dialogue about Israel. It has interfaith, geopolitical and social justice components in order to expose Non-Jewish and Jewish student leaders to Israel through meaningful relationships. It aims to uncover Israel’s uniqueness and complexities so that Israel’s existence and vitality is integrated and valued on campus. To learn more, contact Bar Cohen,
