Have the Experience of a Lifetime on 2020 Youth to Israel Adventure (Y2I)!

The 2020 Y2I trip to Israel will take place from June 28- July 12, 2020.

The Robert I. Lappin Youth to Israel Adventure, Y2I, is a fun and exciting life-changing Israel experience for Jewish teens, who are sophomores or juniors in high school and who live in or who are members of a temple in the 30 cities or towns of the Foundation’s service area.  A limited number of spots are available for Jewish teens who live in CJP’s service area, including Greater Boston and Metro West, thanks to a generous funder.  Y2I, a rite of passage for Jewish teens, is open to all, regardless of level of Jewish observance, education, affiliation or abilities.
Y2I is funded by Lappin Foundation, Robert I. Lappin Charitable Foundation, Robert Israel Lappin and the Lappin Family, Combined Jewish Philanthropies and more than 900 donors to the Foundation’s Annual Campaign.
Lappin Foundation welcomes teens with disabilities to apply to 2020 Y2I.
The Morton and Lillian Waldfogel Charitable Foundation provides funds for families in need to cover costs for Y2I, including program fees, travel and medical insurance, and the deposit.  Contact Sharon Wyner at 978-565-4450 or swyner@lappinfoundation.org for more information.
