This trip is open to students from across the Jewish community and we strive to meet the needs of each participant.
Note: the trip is taking place concurrently with the November 2017 Study Tour, and some areas of programming will be shared. This will give participants on both trips the opportunity to broaden their experience and hear different perspectives
Understanding Areas A, B & C: Visiting Hebron and neighbouring towns and settlements, you will meet with Israeli activists, Palestinian politicians, British diplomats, and Israeli settlers to learn about the many layers of occupation and conflict.
A Day in the South: Meet Israelis living in communities on the Gaza border, learn about inspirational projects in the region and Skype into Gaza.
The Judicial System & Non-Violent Activism: Visit Ofer military court in the West Bank to learn about the complex realities of military law. Meet Palestinians who are passionate about non-violent activism and hear how they are encouraging young people to peacefully campaign against the occupation.
Jerusalem Under a Lens: Building permits, civil unrest, coexistence, residency, and the peace process; Jerusalem is one of the core issues at the heart of the conflict. Spend a day with Israelis and Palestinians working to improve life for those who call the city their home.
