The summer of a lifetime.
For fifty years, IST has helped young 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 pandemic and the resulting postponement of the IST 2020 trip, IST will run two simultaneous trips in the summer of 2021. One for the original IST 2020 teens (graduating seniors) from June 10-July 11 and a second for eligible IST 2021 teens (rising seniors) from June 17-July 18, 2021.
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.
