Overview

This trip is an Israel immersion trip that gives you the perfect blend of action packed tours, intellectual insight and inspiration, and plenty of free time to explore on your own. This is a group trip for young professionals (primarily from Boston). If you would prefer to custom make an itinerary for your private group, please don’t hesitate to be in touch (info@jpulse.org). We work with groups of all types, stripes, shapes and sizes:)

Cost

Flight: We pick up the ground costs. Yup…thank our generous partners. There is a small $250 admin fee but the rest is free once you arrive at our hotel. We could have booked your flight too, but group flights can be a bit more expensive so we’ll leave that part up to you. Whether it be a direct flight, first class, one stop or five stops, you can choose your own flight adventure (or lack thereof:)

Ground costs: With the exception of a small $250 fee, everything on the ground is covered by JPULSE thanks to our generous partners provided that you qualify for our scholarships. This trip is geared for ages 20 – 32 (with exceptions) but we may be able to make exceptions so please be in touch either way. If you would like to pay in full we won’t stop you, of course. The ground and other incidental costs for this particular trip are estimated at $2,000.

How do you apply?

Step 1: Please fill out the application below.

Step 2: Wait to hear from us and if we don’t know you we will need to set up an interview.

Step 3: Submit a $650 deposit. $400 from this deposit will be fully refunded after the trip. The deposit is required so that we can secure your hotels and spot on the bus so that if you bail on us we can use the deposit to alleviate costs (canceling reservations etc.). If the trip is canceled for some reason then we will refund your deposit in full. 

Step 4: Please mail us your flight itinerary so we can look out for you upon arrival.

Itinerary is subject to change. Security measures are in accordance with the State of Israel Ministry of Tourism and our guides are in touch in real time should any itinerary items need to be altered. Most meals are included as listed below.
