2018 Itinerary     2018 Registration

Celebrate this milestone on a fun and spiritually enriching family trip in the ruach (spirit) of the Ramah Camping Movement.  The trip is designed for families with children of all ages, and specifically including children celebrating their Bar or Bat Mitzvah in Israel, ages 11-13, from 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 Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, Eilat, the Dead Sea, the Ramon Crater, and more!
