Lapid: The Coalition for High School Age Programs in Israel
As a follow-up to our recent post, High School Israel Trips Regain Foothold, Lapid Israel has produced a new promotional video.
about: Lapid, the Hebrew word for “torch”, was founded in 2008 as a cooperative initiative to raise awareness of and to significantly increase participation in quality high-school age programs in Israel. The coalition was built on the concept that a strong relationship with Israel begins with a meaningful Israel educational experience and is vital to developing and fostering collective Jewish identity in youth. As one of the three primary organizations bringing youth to Israel from abroad, Lapid seeks equal recognition and financial and institutional support on par with comparable programs for university-age participants.
