RootOne Vouchers


Receive a $2000 or $3000 Voucher toward Tel Yehudah this summer


In these most challenging of times, we continue to be committed to bringing Israel to Tel Yehudah. We do this through our immersive Israel programming designed to introduce our teens to Israel’s culture, history, people, geography, politics, successes, and challenges.  And we do this by bringing staff and campers to join the Tel Yehudah community. More than anything, Israel is about people, our family.  This summer we will have at least 60 teen campers from Israel along with our largest delegation of Israeli staff.   And while it’s not quite the same as traveling to Israel, we provide a rich and meaningful Israel experience in Barryville, New York. 

And so, Tel Yehudah is thrilled to announce we have  been accepted as  a  RootOne trip provider!  RootOne is an initiative of The Jewish Education Project that helps connect thousands of Jewish teens to Israel by lowering the financial barrier to participation in immersive trips, and by investing in the educational quality of those experiences.  A seamless partner for Camp Tel Yehudah  with shared values, mission and vision, we can’t wait to work with  RootOne  to not only grow the number of teens who participate in our program, but to enhance the depth of their experiences as well. 

As Tel Yehudah partners with RootOne, we want you to know about the availability of two types of RootOne vouchers to use toward tuition at Tel Yehudah this summer: 

  • Current 10th graders registered for the full four-week Hadracha program (Blocs 1 and 2) are eligible for a $3000 RootOne voucher. 
  • Current  9th, 10th and 11th graders registered for Merkaz are eligible for a $2000 RootOne voucher.  

Important information. Please read carefully: 

  • Participants must first be registered for Tel Yehudah before applying for a RootOne voucher.
  • Participants must live in the United States.
  • There are a limited number of vouchers so please apply as soon as possible. (Currently there are enough for all registered campers.)
  • Participants can only receive one of the above RootOne vouchers.
  • Participants must not have already received a RootOne voucher for a trip to Israel.
  • Participants who receive a RootOne voucher this summer for Tel Yehudah will still be eligible to receive a voucher next summer if they go on our Young Judaea Gesher program to Israel (or any other RootOne program).

How do I get a RootOne voucher? 

  • Make sure you are registered with Tel Yehudah for either Hadracha or Merkaz (or both).
  • Click HERE to access the RootOne application. This will need to be completed by both parents and teens.  Please read their terms and conditions carefully.  To receive a voucher, you also need to agree to complete pre-program and post-program surveys.  (Please note that the application talks about “trips.”  Our Tel Yehudah programs are being considered as trips by RootOne.)
  • Once your application has been approved by RootOne, we will apply the voucher to your account.

We are very excited to be able to offer this opportunity to enhance the Israel experience at Tel Yehudah while making camp more affordable for all.
