Ezra JEWneration

Ezra JEWneration program and Europe-Israel trip



Have you been dying to go to Israel? Want to learn more about the Jewish History and Jewish tradition from the source? Want to do it in an open and liberating environment? Always wanted to visit Europe and see what the Jewish community is like there? Want to learn about the Holocaust and Jewish leadership?


Get ready for our extra-ordinary program and once-in-a-lifetime experience! Ezra JEWneration program is a sophisticated, mature, and in-depth look into Judaism's view of the world and humanity, leadership skills, and a Holocaust study. It includes 10 weekly sessions, two shabbatons and a trip to Europe and Israel.

Start the trip by touring in Europe, visiting multiple cities and towns with a rich Jewish history, learning about what used to be and what's left after WWII. During this part of the trip you will learn and experience places and stories that will change your life forever. See and hear about the Holocaust with your own eyes and ears. After a few days in Europe the group will travel to Israel.

Once in Israel, you will learn about the revival of the Jewish nation. We will explore Israel and learn about the history of Israel and its people. In addition to touring you will be offered to take part in a short series of fascinating classes which will make the connection between the land of Israel and the Jewish classical texts. Meet new people, learn about your people and about yourself, and have an experience of a lifetime!
