Northern Exposure

This retreat is for Jews ages 21-32

About the Program 


This 5-week retreat will give an experience of the Jewish High Holidays like never before. Northern Exposure, offers participants an opportunity to encounter a different side of Israel through hikes off-the-beaten-track, community service and spirituality workshops all while connecting to the messages and deeper meanings of Rosh Hashana, Yom Kippur and Sukkot.

The program is geared for young Jewish adults from ages 21-32 with minimal Jewish background. Livnot U’Lehibanot arranges all of the programming logistics, so you can spend your time immersed in a new culture.

A typical day during Northern Exposure features community service in the morning with Israelis and your peers, an adventurous hike in the afternoon, and fun and thought-provoking discussions / activities in the evening.

Date: September 18- October 22, 2022
