Ta’am Yisrael – A Taste of Israel
8th Grade Israel Experience!
Register now for CFJE’s Ta’am Yisrael 2013!
Spend the week of Jan. 28 – Feb. 5, 2013, in
the land of Israel!
Ta’am Yisrael: A Taste of Israel, CFJE’s 8th grade Israel Experience, 
aims to give participants a meaningful, intense, emotional and focused 
taste of their heritage through a weeklong, “hands-on” experience in Israel. 
Ta’am Yisrael was developed in order to respond to the needs of 
post-Bar/Bat Mitzvah students, who constitute an especially at-risk group 
for discontinuing their Jewish education. Traditionally, the Bar/Bat Mitzvah 
year has marked the entrance into the Jewish community as an adult. 
However, following the excitement of the Bar/Bat Mitzvah year, a majority 
of students do not return for additional Jewish education.
Register early, by July 16, and save $100!
