Ramah Israel RII
The staff of RII custom designs Israel programs for congregations, schools and families in close cooperation with local rabbis and educators. Our trips are run b’ruach Ramah (in the spirit of Ramah) and focus on Judaism, Zionism and Hebrew. The group’s guide is also an educator, actively involving the participants in a process of discovery. Every itinerary incorporates a unique blend of touring and learning experiences–with pace, style of presentation, and level of accommodations meeting the group’s specific needs and requests.
Our trip options include:
Poland Journey for Adults – Sep. 12-18, 2016:
We will trace the splendor of important Jewish communities in our history: Warsaw, Lublin, Krakow, and more. Exploring the richness of the Jewish life that existed in Poland over 70 years ago will enhance your understanding of the enormity of the Shoah. Together, we will experience first-hand the remnants — and in some cases the revival — of the Jewish communities in Poland.
Bar/Bat Mitzvah Family Adventure – Dec. 20-29, 2016:
Celebrate this milestone on a fun and spiritually enriching trip designed for families with children ages 11-13 from Ramah Camps across North America.
This exciting trip will be focused on family and connecting to circles of life: me, my family, my kehila (community), and my Judaism. Families will visit places in Israel connected to tikkun olam for meaningful community service. Like all of Ramah Israel Institute’s trips, this family adventure will include hiking and touring the South, Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, the Dead Sea, Haifa, and more!
Jewish Day School and Supplementary School Trips :
The Ramah Israel Institute (RII) is a pioneer in the field of Israel education. Ramah has been leading teen trips for day schools, supplementary schools, and more for decades.
