Get ready for FZY Israel Tour 2018!

From the 16 July to 8 August 2018, we are offering every Jewish 16 year-old the opportunity to do something amazing with their summer.

Over the years, FZY have taken over 10,000 people to Israel on our programmes. That is over 10,000 unique stories. Because of this, FZY Israel Tours have an outstanding reputation. Our tours are well organised, and activities are extremely varied. All our tours are led by two madrichim (leaders) from the UK and two madrichim from Israel, who go through an extensive screening process and participate in training seminars both in Israel and in the UK.

This year, for the first time, there will be two distinct programmes on offer. Find out more about them here, and get ready for the summer of a lifetime…


Your Classic Tour Experience

FZY’s Classic Israel Tour is the perfect introduction to Israel. Each Classic Tour bus, accompanied by Israelis from our partners in the Tzofim (scouts), experiences the same core programme in order to discover and explore Israel from every angle. From touring around Jerusalem’s Old City to floating on the Dead Sea, this programme takes you to explore your connection to all four corners of one of the world’s oldest and newest countries.


The Israel and Beyond Experience

Been to Israel before with school? No problem, we’ve got you covered. IBEX is a brand new, tailor-made programme which aims to offer a series of new and immersive experiences to people who have already visited Israel before on an organised programme. IBEX goes beyond the traditional tour to take you to explore new places, off the beaten track, sharing experiences with other people like you. Each IBEX bus will be accompanied by a handful of young Israelis from our Israeli partner movement at the Tzofim, allowing you also to make lasting and meaningful friendships. Come gain a deeper understanding of life in modern Israel, and of the stories behind it.

FZY Israel Tour Maccabiah Event

All of our groups from both programmes stay together at different points during the programme, but never is there a stronger group identity than at the famous FZY Israel Tour Maccabiah Event. This highlight of the summer brings the groups together in a friendly, competitive atmosphere, giving everyone the chance to spend one crazy day together on the shores of the Kinneret.

Why FZY?

FZY tours have an outstanding reputation. In fact, over the last decade we have taken over 5000 people to Israel on short and long-term programmes. They are well organised and activities are extremely varied. All our tours are led by two madrichim (leaders) from Britain together with two madrichim from Israel, who must go through an extensive screening process and participate in training seminars both in Israel and in Britain.
