Looking to have the time of your life in Israel with people who you can hang out with in your city once you return home? You're in luck!
Take a much-needed break from the ordinary and go on an adventure that will be like nothing else you've ever experienced with Phoenix/Tucson area young adults.
With flights leaving from Los Angeles, it is now easier than ever to travel to Israel for free with our community on Birthright Israel!
The Phoenix community has been leading a community Birthright Israel trip for the past four summers since 2012. Generous donors in the Greater Phoenix area specifically came together to raise the funds necessary to support forty participants on Birthright, specifically from the Phoenix area, in addition to Israeli participants for the entire 10 days through our brand-new trip organizer, Shorashim.
On this dynamic 10-day adventure, you’ll get to explore Israel with members of your community while spending the entire 10-day trip with awesome Israelis your own age, ensuring that your experience is amazing and authentic. From living it up in Tel Aviv, floating in the Dead Sea and soaking in the suns, to taking breathtaking hikes, camel trekking, and participating in an incredible social action project in your community’s partnership region, your days will be filled with fun, excitement, and adventure. Get ready to experience the history of Jerusalem, deliciousness of local cuisine, beauty of waterfalls and desert canyons, comfort of a night under the stars in Bedouin hospitality, and so much more, all while creating memories of a lifetime and expanding your local network on Ultimate Adventure With Israelis with Shorashim!
