Applications are now open! If you are a student in Leeds or Manchester, sign up now HERE.


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!
