Jerusalem Explorations



Been to Israel?

Miss the falafel?

Want more? (Israel AND falafel?)

Jerusalem Explorations may be for you!

If you're interested in life's tough questions and can't stand being "fed" an answer, don't miss this trip!

Explorations provides students with the opportunity to delve deep and ask the hard questions. You'll have the chance to look at the sources and judge for yourself. Don't let the rabbi just tell you what to do; you be the judge.

The program focuses on making students responsible for their own growth and education through relationship building, along with interactive, small group learning, complimented by great activities and exciting trips throughout Jerusalem and Israel.

If you've never been on an Aish program, you don't qualify yet. But, hey, some things are worth the wait. In the meantime, check out Fellowships.

If you have been on a qualifying Aish program apply now or email for more info.

Scholarships are available for qualifying students making Explorations as low as $499.
