NFTY Adventure – 4 Weeks in Israel
The NFTY Adventure program is a unique and challenging four-week summer experience created especially for teens who seek a meaningful and exciting journey to Israel.

You’ll have opportunities to meet Israeli teens, ride a camel, snorkel in the Red Sea, mountain bike, join in a real archeological dig, swim in the Mediterranean Sea, celebrate Shabbat in Jerusalem, buy some sandals, eat a falafel, and have the most amazing time of your life!

Before you leave for Israel you’ll select a Chavaya (special interest) module. During your stay you’ll spend four days pursuing your own interests. Choose from Yam L’Yam (Sea to Sea), Tikkun Olam (Repairing the World in Israel), Indiana Jones in Israel (Archeological dig), Gadna (Army training) and Tel Aviv’s Tarbut (Arts & Culture).

When you do return home, you’ll have wonderful memories of your journey. More important, you’ll have newfound pride in yourself, your people and your land.
