Academic

Are you a professor looking to enhance student experience and understanding of their academic field in Israel?
Maybe you are an Israel Fellow or Hillel professional who recognizes the need for a sophisticated examination of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict from up close? How about a campus chaplain interested in organizing an inter-faith journey for students?

Israel Experts is the perfect partner, with years of experience developing these types of programs.

Academic & Experiential Travel

Many professors and students have found that Israel provides fertile soil for in-depth and interactive studies of a variety of academic disciplines. These may include:

  • Law
  • Government & Politics Business
  • Middle Eastern Studies
  • Psychology
  • Archaeology
  • Jewish & Israel Studies
  • Theology
  • Engineering & Aeronautics
  • Health Care & Medicine
  • Agriculture

MTF & Fact Finders Tours

At a time when Israel is at the heart of ongoing controversy, when political stances towards the Jewish State are hard to differentiate from anti-Semitism, and when the language of dialogue is being replaced with boycotts and violence, there is no better time for your students to experience the region for themselves.

We invite Jewish professionals, Israel educators, and academics, along with their students to experience Israel – its beauty, blemishes, accomplishments, challenges, and complexity. Whether they are student leaders forced to take a stand on issues or Jewish students struggling to develop a personal relationship with Israel, this trip challenges assumptions and empowers students with information.

Interfaith Student Trips

Many campuses are looking for ways to bridge differences among students, to seek common territory that enables them to work toward shared goals. Interfaith student trips can provide such an opportunity and set the stage for ongoing, constructive efforts once students return to campus.

The trip was hugely successful educationally and greatly broadened the students’ horizons of understanding. Israel Experts contributed directly to this success. Our heartfelt thanks to you for making this possible.

Exceeded Expectations because I never thought that I would be meeting with politicians in another country, be in such a holy land, meet people who have personally been affected by war, and be surrounded by such amazing leaders on campus in general. The culture, the people, the religion, and the conflict were more than I had ever imagined. The trip was absolutely amazing.
Alexandra Perna 21SDSU
am amazed at all the information I have learned from this trip. I am so lucky and honored to have been a part of something so amazing. I think the true success is knowing that I will make a difference in the future and spread the word of the wonderful people of Israel and how Israel Experts gave me insight to the people of Palestine as well.

The trip exceeded my expectations! I honestly did not expect to learn so much. The trip solidified to me that the best learning comes from being engulfed in a specific space. Hearing narratives from people is the best way to remember. Actually going to Israel and engaging with people who have their own personal opinion about the political issues is far more rewarding than reading any textbook!
