Alternative Break

December 25, 2021 – January 3, 2022

Spend a week making an impact by volunteering in Israel with children, the environment, people with special needs, and minority communities.

JNF-USA has been running Alternative Break trips to Israel for over 15 years. We have brought 2,700 Jewish college students and young adults ages 18-24 to get their hands dirty while making a difference for the land and people of Israel.

Trip participants meet at Newark Liberty International Airport and fly together to Israel as a group. Each day of the trip is comprised of volunteering, touring, education, and independent time in the evenings and on Shabbat. Each participant is responsible for raising a minimum of $1,200 from at least 5 unique donors for JNF-USA’s Blueprint Negev Campaign. Once you reach your fundraising minimum, JNF-USA covers your round-trip flight to Israel, accommodations, most meals, and medical insurance.

How It Works:
1. Register for the trip of your choice.

2. Fill out your travel form.
3. Set up your fundraising page and meet your fundraising goal.Still have questions? Contact us at education@jnf.org
