Six-Day Study Tour to Israel

Study Tour to Israel: Towards a Shared, Secure Future for All

Dates: September 15-20, 2024
Registration now open! Register by April 19th for $400 off

Registration closes July 5th

Join other like-minded liberal Canadians on a unique, six-day exploration of progressive Israeli civil society.

Last year, a surge of civil society mobilization protected Israel in its darkest hours. For nine months, pro-democracy protests staved off a judicial overhaul by Israel’s extremist government.

On and after October 7th, again civil society heroically came to the rescue to deliver humanitarian aid, protect civil liberties and human rights, safeguard Jewish-Arab partnership, and call for political solutions to unending terrorism and occupation.

Now, those same grassroots leaders are determined against all odds to pick up the pieces, heal the wounds, and build a shared, democratic, and peaceful future for Jews and Arabs alike.

This September 15-20, witness the inspiring and hopeful activists and experts dealing with Israel’s most pressing issues:

  • Jewish-Arab joint groups such as Omdim Beyachad, Givat Haviva, and Sikkuy
  • New grassroots leaders and movements like the Hostages Families Forum, Faithful Left, and pro-democracy protests
  • Human rights defenders in the West Bank like Breaking the Silence and Yesh Din
  • Think tanks providing domestic and foreign policy solutions like Mitvim and Berl Katznelson Center

I honestly cannot think of a better way to tour Israel than with a New Israel Fund Study Tour. […] It increased the depth of my knowledge manyfold on issues and facts about the country and its struggles to be a more democratic and equitable society for all its inhabitants — Jewish and non-Jewish. I’d say it brought my level of understanding to a new level — but it also brought me hope! Something I was really craving as I have been a loyal supporter of Israel my entire life.
