NFTY In Israel



NFTY conducts high school summer programs in Israel that combine touring with a special activity: camping and hiking, taking part in an archaeological dig, performing social service work or studying Hebrew. The L'Dor V'Dor program option begins with a week spent exploring European Jewish heritage in Prague, Czech Republic, and Krakow, Poland, before students arrive in Israel.
