Israel Scholarship Funds
Since 1956, BBYO has proudly provided opportunities for Jewish teens of all backgrounds to experience Israel during their high school years.
Research and personal experience has shown us that teens who travel to Israel during their high school years develop a profound understanding of Jewish history, they can better appreciate the miracle of modern Israel, and they come away with a stronger sense of identity prior to their entering university life. Simply stated, high school-age experiences in Israel are vitally important.
Travel to Israel has been a dream of the Jewish People for millennia. We are fortunate that today’s teens do not need to contend with the physical challenges of generations past. The challenge facing most Jewish teens today, however, is financial in nature – and it is a daunting one for thousands of Jewish families.
Help a Teen Travel to Israel Next Summer
BBYO has addressed this challenge by aggressively keeping down the cost of our Israel experiences and by raising funds for need-based scholarship aid. Last year BBYO distributed over $250,000 in financial assistance for Israel travel – and yet we only scratched the surface of meeting the need.
Help us share the experience of Israel with tomorrow’s teens by making a donation today to the Milk & Honey Israel Scholarship Fund.
