The Upgraded Israel Tour Experience

Upgraded Accommodation

A month away from home is a long time and we want to do everything we can to make the experience as enjoyable and comfortable as possible. We have upgraded where we are staying and carefully selected 3 and 4 star accommodation.

Laundry Service

Leave space in your suitcase for souvenirs! BBYO Israel Tour includes a worry-free laundry service so you don't need to pack clothes to last for a month!

Elective Tracks

Explore Israel on your own terms alongside BBYO teens from across the globe! For a segment of our trip, we offer three Elective Tracks suited to participants' interests. For more information about our Elective Tracks, please get in touch with the BBYO Office for a brochure. 

Educational Approach

We embrace and celebrate every aspect of Israeli life, while encouraging our participants to engage on a broad spectrum of topics. Teens will leave our Tour with the confidence to define their own sense of Zionism. Our Tour truly is for every Jewish teen
