Jewish National Fund's
Alternative Break

July 26 - August 3, 2021

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

JNF has been running Alternative Break trips to Israel for over 15 years. We have brought 2,500 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 in California or New York area 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 $1,150 from at least 5 unique donors for JNF's Go North Campaign. Once you reach your fundraising minimum, JNF 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.
