First Ever Hazon Birthright Trip!

Hazon has partnered with Israel Outdoors Birthright to offer a brand new, unique Birthright trip – the Hazon Eco-Adventure. It’s for people aged 22 to 26, it’s free, and we hope and intend that it will be a blast – rafting, biking, and hiking across the country. It’s an Israel trip for those who want to get outdoors, and who want to connect and learn about some of the front-edge of work in Israel on sustainability and the environment.

This is a pilot trip. Our bus (like our cup?!) is half-full. If you’re interested, please be in touch with Miriam Leichtling,, for more information. The deadline is March 13th. Read below for more trip details.

Experience the very best of Israel while exploring its natural beauty, ecological treasures, and environmental innovations on this brand new Birthright trip. Discover how sustainability is woven into the fabric of Israel’s identity. Trek through trails led by a certified naturalist guide. Meet students from the internationally recognized Arava Institute. Sample delicious farm to table food and support local economies. Raft down the famed Jordan River. Explore Israel’s unique desert agriculture, water conservation, and authentic kibbutz-based living. Stop to take a dip in waterfalls and refreshing pools, cycle through ancient landscapes and experience a dazzling array of topography as you span the length of this incredible country. An eclectic mix of eco-friendly lodging, sleeping under the stars and urban touring are all part of the fun…will you be there?
