In recent years we've been to New Orleans, Boston, Denver, Las Vegas and EVERY year we go to ISRAEL. YLD trips offer participants the opportunity to create lifelong connections, meet young adults from across the country and learn more about Federation and relevant issues affecting the Jewish community.
