1,000 high school students from 25 Jewish schools across France have arrived in Israel for Bac Bleu Blanc (“Seniors in Blue and White”), a weeklong program run by The Jewish Agency for Israel with the support of Keren Hayesod.

Bac Bleu Blanc is the largest program run by the schools in France to bring Jewish teenagers on educational experiences in Israel. Every school takes an active part in crafting its own individual touring program. More than 8,600 high school students from 25 schools have come to Israel since the program was launched eleven years ago.

During their visit to Israel, the students will tour the country, meet with Israeli peers, and visit educational programs, institutions of higher education, high tech companies, and other sites.
