2015 – 2016  Livnot Northern Exposure

A week of hiking, volunteering and amazement from only $195

Northern Exposure, a one-week Israel experience program, offers participants an opportunity to encounter Israel through community service, off-the-beaten-track hikes, and spirituality workshops.


Israel for as little as $1,000…How is that possible?

This is a great time of year to come to Israel and to experience it through Livnot U’Lehibanot.  We are offering a highly subsidized program for $195 for one-week or $300 for two-weeks.
During the winter season there are many low-cost fares available, some for approximately $700. Low fares combined with our subsidized program can mean an Israel experience for as low as $1000. So why wait? Here are some sites to check out: Expedia  / Cheapair / There are other great sites out there but we offer these to get you started.
Important Note: Livnot U’Lehibanot is not offering a package deal. The applicant is responsible for booking, reserving and payment regarding all flights and travel to and from the Livnot program. Livnot takes no responsibility for prices or services provided by either Expedia or Cheapair or any other outside service.

More Details

Be part of rewarding and challenging work to help the next generation in developing Israel.  Every Livnot volunteer project is driven by the community, so you know you’ll be doing the work that really matters to locals and their families. We’ve arranged all of the logistics, so you can spend your time immersed in a new culture and experiencing growth and reflection.

Each program creates a community of young Jewish adults who volunteer, learn, trek, ask questions, engage local residents and experience Israel differently. The sense of community created by the Livnot program carries over to all the activities in which participants engage while learning about Israel, Israelis the Jewish World, and their personal connection to each of these aspects. The program is geared for young Jewish adults, ages 21-30 with minimal Jewish background.
