“i2i - I’m going to Israel” - is a new project designed especially for 8th graders
Brought to you by Gratz Jewish Community High School and
Sponsored by Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia
Experiential learning has the most impact! i2i brings Israel to life by engaging students with interesting sessions paired with overnights culminating in a trip to Israel after the first year.
Participants begin forming their ties to one another and to Israel in spring of 2013 and strengthen their commitments through the ten-day tour. The land, people, history, food language, and culture jumps out of the classroom and into participants’ souls.
Upon return, the adventurers have insight into their own connection to Israel and Judaism. Their learning continues in 9th grade with classroom meetings and two overnight experiences with a focus on leadership.
While in Israel, participants experience:
JCHS contracts with a highly regarded Israeli travel company that is experienced with teens and provides security throughout the trip. Staff include: a certified experienced bi-lingual tour guide, an armed medical/security professional and i2i staff.
