The summer of a lifetime.
For fifty years, IST has helped young Jewish Coloradans broaden their knowledge about Israel, its neighbors, and Jewish heritage and history. ISTers have brought home souvenirs and memories. They’ve made lifelong friends and even, in some cases, met the people they would go on to marry. It’s a lifetime of learning in just five weeks.
From the Jewish quarter in Krakow to sunrise on Masada to shabbat at the Western Wall and so much more, IST combines extraordinary adventure, exceptional leaders with years of experience, and a commitment to education and Jewish values. It’s the perfect opportunity for your teenager to become more independent, learn about themselves and Israel, and strengthen their Jewish identity.
Due to the uncertainties around international travel, IST will only travel to Israel this summer.
We hope to add Poland back to the itinerary in the coming years.

The Joyce Zeff Israel Study Tour is turning 50
A beloved and longstanding tradition among Colorado teens and their families, IST has connected thousands of young Coloradans to the land of Israel and to the people who live within its borders.
Over the years, tour participants have broadened their knowledge about Israel, its neighbors, and Jewish heritage and history. They’ve brought home not just souvenirs but memories that last a lifetime. They’ve made lifelong friends and even, in some cases, met the people they would go on to marry.
