Save a Seat for IST 2019

The Joyce Zeff Israel Study Tour (IST) is a journey of a lifetime and life-changing experience. From sunrise at Massada to Shabbat at the Western Wall (Kotel), it combines extraordinary adventure, exceptional leaders, a commitment to education, Jewish values, and years of experience to guide students to learn, explore, discover and soak up every moment. Students have the opportunity to become more independent, learn more about themselves, connect to Israel and strengthen their Jewish identity. IST is one of the premiere Israel teen trips and is the longest running annual community-based Israel trip in the U.S. It’s a 5-week immersive program where we spend the first 4 days in Poland then the next 30 days in Israel. The trip is for students that are currently juniors in high school
