Jewish young adults ages eighteen to twenty-six are eligible for a ten day trip with the program to see Israel and learn about Jewish history.  Ashley Harris, a UK Education Abroad Peer Ambassador,  traveled with a group of about thirty other students from the Chicagoland area and seven Israeli soldiers ages twenty to twenty three.

We saw the whole country from the northern deserts, floating in the Dead Sea, hiking Masada and ancient ruins, to camping in the Negev desert and riding camels! I’m so glad I took the opportunity to see what Israel has to offer and I can’t wait to go back one day!
