Northern Exposure Passover Program, a week-long Israel experience program, offers participants an opportunity to encounter a different side of Israel through hikes off-the-beaten-track, community service, and spirituality workshops.

The program is geared for young Jewish adults in their 20’s 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.
