Noam Israel Tour is structured to give you a chance to visit Israel without feeling like a tourist. Tour is divided into four distinct parts, each telling it’s own story whilst building on the last. Rather than hopping from place to place, Noam Israel Tour gives you the opportunity to build a connection to the region you’re staying in whilst actively learning, seeing, and engaging with what goes on around you.



We are striving to create a better world by bringing together young like-minded people who share the same values and are proud to have a vibrant ideology which is shaped by the people we care about most, our members!

Through Noam we aim to strengthen community bonds and be part of something that is bigger than ourselves. Join us for a social Jewish experience like no other!

 



Let us take you from the south, where you will hike through the most beautiful scenery of the land of Israel!

To the Centre, a bustling melting pot of all the peoples of Israel.

From there you will travel to the North to play your part in a local community.

Before finishing in Jerusalem, exploring the regions of Israel.

Noam Israel Tour will leave you with a vision of what the future of Israel will look like and how you can be a part of it.

WHERE WILL WE GO TOGETHER?


The South: The Land of Israel

Begin your journey in the south in the Negev desert where you’ll stay in Sde Boker, The Kibbutz which was so loved by the first prime minister of Israel, David Ben Gurion. He believed that the Jewish people should pour their energies into ‘making the desert bloom’. Discover the same beauty which captured Ben Gurion’s heart by going on breath taking tiyulim (hikes) and seeing for yourself the communities that have grown in the region.


The Centre: Peoples of Israel

Travel to the centre of the country where you will visit the bustling hub of Tel Aviv. Here you will have the opportunity to roam the markets of Jaffa, visit the historic sites to see how Israel’s past is shaping its present and see first hand why Israel has earned itself the title of ‘start-up nation’. You’ll also have the chance to meet local activists and learn about the growing disparity between North and South Tel Aviv.


Jerusalem: Religions of Israel

Jerusalem is the next and final stop on your journey. Let our madrichim guide you through the intersections of conflict which meet you there; religious, political and cultural, to leave you with a nuanced understanding of this holy city. You will discover and explore the city at the heart of three major world faiths, while connecting the sites central to what it means to be Jewish.


The North: Play your Part

Head North for another week of adventure. Having spent the last two weeks learning and seeing, it is now your chance to go and do! Noam is a Zionist youth movement that believes firmly in the existence of Israel as a Jewish, equal, democratic state. We believe we have an obligation to build a Jewish state which reflects our values. In keeping in this, in the north you will embark on a fulfilling community project. This will offer a brilliant opportunity to meet the diverse population of Israel, build meaningful relationships and play your part.
