We have organized over 2,000 trips for young adults to experience Israel in the way that they choose: whether it is to volunteer in Israel, hold internships in Israel or learn Hebrew in Israel. We encourage travel to Israel as part of a life-long learning experience concerning the history and heritage of the Jewish People. Our mission is to provide you with an experience in the Jewish homeland that you’ll never forget. Masa’s grants and financial aid ensure that your Destination Israel experience will be affordable. All you have to do is make the decision that you want to spend some time in Israel and leave the rest of the legwork up to us. We will find a perfect program for you that fulfills all of your desires and suits all your needs.

Destination Israel’s expertise in providing organized trips to Israel for young adults from all over the world has garnered over 58,000 alumni and hundreds of participants on our programs in Israel at any moment. In 2011, Destination Israel was acquired by Egged Tours, a subsidiary of Egged Cooperative, the leading public transportation operator in Israel and one of the largest public transportation companies in the world. This new leadership combined with Destination Israel’s powerhouse of innovation, out-of-the-box thinking and the Egged Tours’ brand name is a match made in heaven for Israel travel!
