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 engage, enthuse and educate our participants, enabling them to develop a personal connection to Israel.
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!
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.
In the Negev, which was so loved by the first Prime Minister of Israel, David Ben Gurion, we will see how the Jewish people poured their energies into ‘making the desert bloom’. Discover the same beauty which captured Ben Gurion’s heart by going on breath-taking tiyulim (hikes), experiencing the ins-and-outs of kibbutz life and seeing for yourself the communities that have grown in the region.
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’.
Adventuring in the North of Israel you will have the opportunity to go on stunning hikes, to see the beauty of the land, and to challenge yourself with aqua sports in the Kinneret. As well as seeing the stunning views in the mountains, you will be able to explore and immerse yourselves in dynamic and multicultural cities and communities in the North
Let our madrichim guide you through the complexities of life which meet you there: religious, political, and cultural. Discover and explore the city at the heart of three major world faiths, exploring the Old City and connecting to the central Jewish sites. You will meet activists fighting for religious and political change, such as Women of the Wall, empowering you to fight for the causes you believe in.
