|Honeymoon Israel provides immersive trips to Israel for locally based cohorts of couples that have at least one Jewish partner, early in their committed relationship, creating communities of couples who are building families with deep and meaningful connections to Jewish life and the Jewish people. Our goal is to make you and your family feel welcome in the Jewish community and to inspire you to incorporate Jewish values into your lives in whatever way works for you. We think the Jewish community has a lot to offer the world, and we'd like to see it grow, so we're promoting an inclusive view of Jewish life, including partners from other faiths and people who might traditionally have been excluded. Honeymoon Israel is a completely inclusive organization - we welcome Jewish/Jewish, interfaith and LGBTQ couples.

Since its founding in 2013, KAHAL has connected more than 4,500 Jewish students to immersive Jewish experiences during their life-changing time abroad. By incorporating Jewish experiences and choices into this transformative environment, KAHAL measurably increases students' attachment to the global Jewish people and increases the likelihood of their long-term Jewish choices.
