For more than 35 years, Jewish teens from across Colorado have been traveling to Israel via the Israel Study Tour. For several weeks each summer, this community trip builds the participants’ Jewish identity and connection to Israel. The trip includes a stop in Allied Jewish Federation of Colorado’s Partnership2Gether region of Ramat Negev, where Colorado teens are able to spend time with and forge relationships with their Israeli counterparts. Through our Israel, National, and Overseas Center, Federation has historically provided $2000 subsidies to each teen participating in the program. Past participants have gone on to serve in a variety of leadership roles throughout the Jewish community as adults.
