Keshet youth programs integrate interactive encounters with Israeli society, experiential learning about Judaism and Jewish history, and exploration of the natural beauty of the Land of Israel. We believe that the route to identification with Israel and Zionism must include the enhancement of a Jewish consciousness, which is why we specialize in building programs that integrate recreation and education towards Jewish pride and identity.
Keshet has long-standing relationships of almost 20 years with several of our camp clients, and we're honored to form relationships with new camps all the time.
- Na'aleh (Camp Yavneh)
- Dor L’Dor (Cohen Foundation Camps)
- Camp Micah
- Camp Daisy and Harry Stein (CDHS)
- Sulam (Camp Morasha)
Jewish Identity and Religious Content
As a completely independent and non-affiliated organization, Keshet is committed to providing a meaningful Israel experience for all our trip participants from across the spectrum of Jewish affiliation and observance. The Talmud writes that there are seventy faces to the Torah, and we have adopted this approach in creating a pluralistic and inter-denominational Jewish educational model in Israel.
People Make the Difference
Keshet works exclusively with guides who are excellent teachers, educators and role models for American teens. All of our staff have extensive summer camp experience and understand that this is where formative Jewish and personal experiences happen. Although Israeli society is often seen to be polarized between its religious and secular elements, our educational staff are people who thrive in an atmosphere of pluralism, diversity and mutual respect. Our guides and counselors are united by a commitment to Jewish life and Israel that is infectious, inspiring and thoroughly respectful of the multitude of traditions in our nation.
Keshet provides all the services required for a superb Israel program:
- Educational planning and staff training in Israel and the U.S.A.
- Thoughtful, creative itinerary balancing education with recreation, adventure and security
- Sophisticated communications and security network
- Food, transportation, air travel and accomodation services
