Study Abroad (Age 18–21)

When young Jewish adults immerse themselves in Israel on a five to twelve month Masa Israel program, the experience becomes about something larger than themselves.
What We Do
Help young people find the right program
Provide grants and scholarships
Offer enrichment programs and support in Israel
Keep alumni engaged and connected afterward
Long-term Israel programs are crucial for inspiring the next generation of Jewish leaders and ensuring they have a strong connection to Israel.
A study conducted through the Berman Jewish Policy Archive at NYU Wagner found that when a short-term Israel visit is compounded with a long-term stay through Masa Israel, the connection to Israel and Jewish life is deeper and longer lasting.
Masa Israel Journey is shaping the next generation of Jewish leaders in North America, paving a road to continuity for the Jewish people, and enabling young Jewish adults to build strong connections to Israel.
Help Us Grow
To continue expanding our impact, Masa Israel relies on alumni, their parents, and our friends throughout the community—federations, foundations, Jewish community organizations, and synagogues.
No other organization makes it easier for young Jewish adults to have life-changing experiences in Israel.
The government of Israel matches every dollar raised by the Jewish Agency for Masa Israel, so each donation goes twice as far.
