2021 December Y2I warmly welcomes Jewish teens from interfaith families. Teens of all abilities and Jewish backgrounds are invited to apply, regardless of level of Jewish observance, Jewish education, or Jewish affiliation.

The goal of Y2I is Jewish continuity. Y2I was established in 1970 by philanthropist Robert Israel Lappin (of blessed memory), who believed the teen Israel experience is the most effective way to build Jewish pride, connect young people to Israel, and imbue them with love and responsibility for our Jewish Family. Key to Y2I’s success is the fully subsidized community teen trip to Israel. More than 3,000 Jewish teens have participated in Y2I since 1970.

The 11-day trip to Israel is fully subsidized with funds raised by Lappin Foundation’s Annual Campaign and with financial support from the Robert I. Lappin Charitable Foundation.

2021 Y2I is funded by generous donors to Lappin Foundation’s Annual Campaign and with a CJP allocation.
