Masa Israel Journey welcomes young jewish adults (18-30) on trip to Israel
A joint project of the Government of Israel and the Jewish Agency for Israel, Masa Israel Journey enables young Jewish adults between the ages of 18 and 30 from around the world to spend 5 to 12 months interning, volunteering or studying in Israel, while building a lasting relationship with the land and its people, strengthening their Jewish identity, and gaining meaningful, life-changing experiences.
This year, Masa Israel welcomed over 9,400 participants to Israel.
The economic crisis and its affect on the North American job market have caused thousands of young adults to search beyond traditional career development paths. Masa Israel's post-college internship and volunteer programs have given more than 3,000 young Jewish adults the opportunity to intern and volunteer with Israeli companies, organizations and governmental agencies since the economic crisis began in the fall of 2008. This experience undoubtedly benefits participants as they gain job skills and global experience.

Masa Israel is also working to leverage connections between companies that do business in Israel and the United States to improve participants' internship experiences and to assist Masa Israel internship program alumni to obtain employment upon their return to North America.
Masa Israel is seeking to partner with the American-Israel Chamber of Commerce to create these connections for Masa Israel program participants and alumni.
I'd like to find time to discuss how Masa Israel and the American-Israel Chamber of Commerce in LA can work together. I will be in LA June 2 and 3rd and would love to meet, if possible, while I'm in town. Please let me know if you are available.
