Yad B’Yad is a life changing summer experience that brings teens with and without disabilities together on a five-week travel adventure across Israel. Our varied itinerary creates a multi-faceted trip that enables participants to feel connection, inspiration, and growth all in one place.
Our unique program promotes the inclusion of all individuals and creates a space where each person contributes and feels they are part of something greater. With the guidance of an all-star staff, participants engage with Israel, our homeland, in an unparalleled way. Participants form strong relationships and develop leadership qualities as the summer progresses. Fun, friendship, and meaning are packed into each day of our trip.
After a transformative summer, participants return home as passionate leaders. They appreciate inclusion as a mindset, an attitude, a way of life and strive to bring that magic home. Yachad has chapters across North America and Israel with year-round Shabbatons, events, and special programs, enabling high schoolers to facilitate Yachad’s inclusive framework within their schools and communities. Yad B’Yad is a summer experience with an impact that lasts and is a beautiful beginning to a lifelong journey.
