URJ 6 Points Sci-Tech Israel

Explore Israel as a living laboratory where science and technology meet the Jewish past, present, and future. Teens will engage in an interactive learning environment that seamlessly incorporates Jewish values and history while exploring Israel’s role as a global innovator in science and technology. Participants will explore the history of how our people came to Israel as merchants, craftsmen, and traders, and became entrepreneurs, researchers, and inventors. Sci-Tech Israel offers the best of two worlds: visiting iconic sites like Masada, the Kotel, and Independence Hall while also meeting with global experts in fields such as renewable energy and computer tech. Teens will return understanding the deep connection that we have to our land and how one small country with limited resources turned science and technology into its biggest success story.
