Israel 2020

Ohrsom’s yearly flagship program is an incredible 2 week trip to Israel. It is truly a once in a lifetime experience and you need to be a part of it!

For an extremely affordable and all inclusive $1,149, you will enjoy fun filled activities in conjunction with an intellectual adventure. Meals are included, many of them in amazing restaurants around the country. You will have the chance to experience rafting, snorkeling, abseiling, ATVing and so much more.

Israel in July is almost unbeatable, and with Ohrsom it will be a time for meeting new people, bonding with friends, partying from the Golan to Eilat and discovering things about yourself and the Jewish people you may have never known before!

Upon return, participants are committed to attending 25 very relaxed, enjoyable and extremely interesting learning sessions. The weekly learning program invites inspiring and powerful speakers in addition to our very own talented Ohrsom Student team of Rabbis who are constantly sharing challenging content with room for debate and engagement from everyone involved.
