About Alternative Spring Break
Have you been wishing you were in Israel? Ready to go back? Join JNF this March for an unforgettable week of volunteering and fun.
JNF’s Alternative Spring Break in Israel is a FREE trip for Jewish college students and young adults (ages 18-30) to volunteer in Israel. It is an exciting week long trip allowing its participants to make a personal impact in Israel. This year's volunteering will take place both in the North of Israel and in the Negev Desert. Trips leave on March *1, 8, 15, and **23, 2014 (*Includes a bus specifically for young professionals, **LA departure).
Participants are responsible for raising a minimum of $1,500, using an easy online program to communicate by email to family and friends for the trip. Monies raised will go towards JNF’s Blueprint Negev campaign if you travel to the South of Israel, and to Operation Carmel Renewal if you travel to the North of Israel. Blueprint Negev supports Israel’s newest generation of pioneers in developing, inhabiting and preserving the Negev Desert, and Operation Carmel Renewal to help rebuild Northern Israel from the devastating December 2010 fire. Both trips include opportunities to get your hands dirty and help out, meet people who are changing the world, and reflect on the Jewish service experience.
Once the money is raised, the program is FREE. The actual cost of the program is covered by other JNF donors. Participants are responsible for round trip transportation to New York or Los Angeles from their home communities.
Hope to see you in Israel!
