JSU plans summer trip in Israel for high school students

JSU trip to Israel

A scene from a previous ‘Jerusalem Journey’ Israel trip led by Jewish Student Union.

Jewish Student Union invites high school students in ninth through 12th grades to spend four weeks in Israel as part of JSU’s The Anne Samson Jerusalem Journey. The Israel trip is for Jewish teens attending public and private non-Jewish high schools. 

Supported by the Harvey L. Miller Family Foundation, the Jewish Federation of St. Louis and other donors, the JSU trip has a cost of $1,024 for participants, which is all-inclusive. 

The trip allows participants to discover more about their Jewish heritage and culture by learning about the history and people of Israel. Participants will visit a variety of ancient and modern sites of Israel, including Jerusalem and Tel Aviv. Trip activities take place all over Israel, such as hiking through waterfalls in the Judean Desert and the Golan Heights, torpedo boating and snorkeling in Eilat’s Red Sea, kayaking down the Jordan River, rappelling off the cliffs of the Upper Galilee mountain range, navigating a water obstacle course in the Sea of the Galilee and staying overnight in a Bedouin tent.
