SPECIALTY TRACKS

The Israel 75 Mission offers several opportunities to design a customized itinerary through specialty track options. UJA will send registrants a list of available tracks. Participants will be able to select their choice of tracks, specifying their order of preference. Tracks will be finalized based on overall demand by registrants’ selections. Each track is on a first-come, first-served basis and has a limited number of spaces. More details to come!

PRE & POST MISSION ARRANGEMENTS

While UJA does not have any official programming before or after the Mission, a wide variety of options are possible before and after the trip, both in Israel and elsewhere.
