Prior Community Involvement and 'Israel Experience' Educational Tours

By Erik H. Cohen

Hobbs the Printers Ltd., 1999

The purpose of the Israel Experience program is to instill in Diaspora youth stronger ties with Israel and their Jewish identity. Almost all participants already have some connection with a Jewish community. The programme reinforces rather than radically change the attitudes and opinions held by the participants toward Israel and Judaism. There is a positive correlation between this prior affiliation and satisfaction with the programme. Community activities and formal Jewish schooling serve both as preparation for the educational tour and as a framework in which the experience can be understood and integrated.
