Masa Israel Journey

Masa Israel’s Midwest Regional Director Aimee Weiss serves as a resource in finding the right program for the Jewish young adult in your life. Masa Israel Journey connects Jewish young adults to gap year, study abroad, post-college, and volunteer programs in Israel. With over 10,000 participants each year, no other organization makes it easier for young adults to have exciting, life-changing experiences in Israel. Through these immersive experiences, lasting between five and twelve months, participants develop a deep, personal connection to Israel and Jewish life, thereby ensuring the continuity of the Jewish people.

Grants and scholarships up to $7,500 are available for eligible participants. Masa Israel is a joint project of the Government of Israel and the Jewish Agency for Israel and is made possible by the generous contributions of the Jewish Federations of North America and Keren Hayesod-UIA.
