Join MBI (Machaneh Bonim B’Israel) for a five-week summer adventure with your national shichva (age group). On MBI you will travel throughout Israel, from Jerusalem to Tel Aviv; from the Golan Heights to the Negev. Learn first hand about the Israeli peoples, history, culture, and society.


Relationships developed during the MBI program last a lifetime. Activities focus on building strong ties within their groups and with their national shichva (age group). The MBI program fosters growth and new levels of understanding by creating a powerful learning environment. Israeli, North American and international youth are brought together to provide diverse insight in topics such as community building, Judaism, and the Palestinian–Israeli conflict. MBI participants will be given the opportunity to learn independently and communally about their connection to Israel and Jewish society.
