The Real Deal - Spring 2018


A previous trip in Rawabi, Palestine

UJS are excited to announce our next Real Deal trip!

After two highly successful trips in summer 2017, we are proud to announce the next ‘Real Deal’ in spring 2018. 

Welcoming students at London universities of all faiths, backgrounds and cultures, this is your opportunity to visit Israel and Palestine in April 2018 – the perfect way to spend your Easter break! 


A previous trip at the Western Wall, Jerusalem

Here’s some of what you can look forward to in this whirlwind experience:

  • Walk through the ancient cobbled streets of Jerusalem’s Old City
  • Experience the vibrant, cosmopolitan city of Tel Aviv
  • Visit Ramallah, the current main city of Palestine’s government, economy and social and cultural life
  • Come face-to-face with some of the most pressing social issues facing Israel today
  • Explore diversity in Jaffa, where history and modernity blend along with the mixed Jewish, Muslim, Christian, Arab and Israeli population
  • You’ll be floating in the dead sea, riding camels in the Negev desert, hiking in the northern forests!
  • See first hand the realities of the Israel-Palestine conflict in 2018

And so much more!
