Nesiya (journey) is a 3-week Noam adventure where chanichim (participants) will travel to the beautiful European cities of Prague, Budapest and Krakow before concluding with an inspiring stay in Israel.
Nesiya gives participants the opportunity to discover their Jewish identity in a unique way. This once in a lifetime trip explores themes of global citizenship, European Jewish history, and Zionism.
We are striving to engage, enthuse and educate our participants, enabling them to develop a personal connection to Israel and the global Jewish community.
Through Noam we aim to build a vibrant young Jewish community that is actively involved in the issues of wider society. Join us for a unique, social Jewish journey!
In Europe, Nesiya will trace the story of Zionism in the diaspora, connecting with the rich and vibrant history of European culture and Jewry. Amidst sightseeing and exploring the cities, we will visit waterparks and hike through stunning countrysides.
Nesiya will begin in stunning Prague, home to a rich cultural heritage and a vibrant modern city full of iconic sites like the Prague Castle and Jewish Quarter. Next stop will be Budapest with its thermal baths, caves and beautiful castle district. And finally, Nesiya will end in Krakow, full of quaint streets and natural beauty. Water parks and hikes await!
As a Zionist youth movement we know how important it is that we show up for Israel and give chanichim the opportunity to help in its time of need.
The Israel part of Nesiya promises to be a once in a lifetime experience. Through meaningful volunteer work, chanichim will collaborate with local communities on diverse restorative projects. With a focus on making a positive impact and contributing to Israel’s recovery, Nesiya will give chanichim the opportunity to live and learn a thoughtful and meaningful Zionist ideology.
But it’s not all work and no play! Get ready to lace up your hiking boots and explore the breathtaking landscapes of Israel on classic tiyulim (trips). Meet with incredible educators to learn about paths towards a safe, democratic future of our country.
Nesiya will also feature a special Noam shabbat in the Old City of Jerusalem!
*The Israel part of Nesiya will only go ahead subject to UK govenment FCDO advice on travel to Israel.
