On GIVE, we visit an array of chesed organizations and experience firsthand what it means to be a responsible member of the Jewish people by helping those in need. From soup kitchens to medical clowning, greeting a Nefesh B’Nefesh flight to painting kindergartens in underprivileged communities, GIVErs are able to contribute to the many needs of those Jews living in Israel.
While GIVE’s primary focus is volunteer work, touring and exposure to the land of Israel continues to be a major piece of the summer. When not engaged in chesed activities, GIVE takes you to many of the major tourist attractions throughout Israel. Some highlights include spending Shabbat in Tzfat, banana boating on the Kineret, hiking in the Judean desert and the Golan, mountain rappelling and floating in the Dead Sea.
GIVE is an opportunity for girls to give back some of the good that they have received in their lives to those less fortunate. For an amazing summer that allows you to experience tangible Judaism in an incredibly exciting environment, while making friends from all over, sign up for NCSY’s GIVE!
Don’t let this opportunity pass you by! read less

Chetz V'Keshet has been bringing teenagers who finished 9th -12th grade from all over the world to Israel for a 4-week summer program since 1981. Our teens experience Israel's culture, heritage, language, and society as they tour the beautiful country. We hike, bike, swim and travel all across Israel while learning about its people and rich history. Each participant engages in several volunteer activities and completes up to 40 hours of community service during the program. During Gadna week, our participants will get to experience hands-on army training and educational activities with Israel Defense Forces (IDF) commanders. This year, you can also earn 3 college credits if eligible and accepted to our dual enrollment program. What makes Chetz V'Keshet truly unique is our Israeli participants--25% of our participants are Israelis who are members of the Israeli Tzofim youth movement. Our counselors are all Israelis who are fluent in English, have completed their army services and mastered our intensive training course.
