This is not your Birthright trip; it’s not Israel from the tourist’s perspective. In the workplace, you’ll work side-by-side with Israelis forming authentic relationships and friendships that are not typically available to tourists. You’ll live in a regular Israeli neighborhood, not in a hotel. You can take the light-rail to work like an Israeli, not be shuttled around on touring bus. Also, depending on the Learning Program you select, your program will feature the kind of touring activities that are off the beaten path so you’ll have ample time to explore Israel.
