We know how important the Joyce Zeff Israel Study Tour (IST) has been for our community’s teenagers—past and present—but after careful and extensive consideration, we have decided to postpone IST 2020. We know that our young travelers were looking forward to the experience, but we also know that this decision is the right one, given the circumstances.
We remain committed to all of our IST participants and to what has become, over many decades, a beloved rite of passage in our community.
In the summer of 2021, JEWISHcolorado will run two separate but simultaneous trips: one for this summer’s cohort and a second for next summer’s cohort. We are working with our trip provider to book accommodations for next summer, and we expect to be able to announce new departure and return dates in August.
