In an era where Jewish heritage, Zionism and idealism are widely perceived as things of the past, the Israeli Routes Odyssey takes decisive action to reverse that trend. By investing in the country’s youth, a growing percentage of Israel's future generation are reconnecting and bonding to the idealism upon which the State was founded.
Over 100,000 Israeli 11th graders and IDF commanders have taken part in the The Mibereshit Foundation’s Israeli Routes Odyssey (Masa Yisraeli in Hebrew), a unique, life changing educational experience, designed to reinforce individual, Jewish and Zionist identities, while strengthening the connection and sense of belonging of the participants to the people, land and State of Israel, as well as to the specific communities from which they come.
