Gesher Leadership

Interested in being a leader in Young Judaea? Thinking about being a madrich/a in a Young Judaea summer camp?  Considering a leadership position at school or in an organization?  Gesher Leadership is for you.

Before heading off to Israel, spend five days with your friends back at TY learning critical leadership skills and taking on leadership roles in camp.  Together you will prepare, plan and help lead all elements of the first Shabbat at TY and more.   Of course you will also have traditional camp experiences including Saturday night Rikud, peulat erev, and time to just chill with your old and new friends while you prepare to head off to Israel together on Gesher Israel!

Explore Israel’s breathtaking nature from north to south as you experience heritage and history in ancient Jerusalem, modern innovation and non-stop culture in Tel Aviv, and so much more for three and a half eye-opening weeks. Gesher is so much more than a trip to Israel – it’s the opportunity to truly connect with the country and create lifelong memories. Whether at the top of Masada, floating in the Dead Sea, navigating through the Negev desert, or strolling the colorful marketplaces, you’ll find lots of things to love about Israel!

We are proud to be part of the RootOne Initiative in helping more Jewish American teens than ever have an amazing Israel experience, and the total cost of Gesher Israel – including airfare – is $3,950! Learn more about Gesher Israel  HERE.
