Our Israel program brings together year 10 students from all over Australia for an immersive 5-week experience. The students get to delve into the real Israel, learning about and experiencing the land, its people, culture and history, as they travel the country from top to bottom. Along the way, they have many unique experiences, create lifelong friendships and develop a strong connection to our homeland. This program is run in partnership with the NSW Board of Jewish Education (BJE) and is specifically designed for year 10 students at non-Jewish schools.

A group of highly motivated Melbourne Jewish teens are this year working to revive the vibrant BBYO youth movement in Australia, with a new Melbourne chapter. They are running regular events in 2019, which are open to secondary school students, and are supported by UJEB and B’nai B’rith Victoria.
Members of the core group had exciting opportunities to connect with the BBYO international movement this year. In February, a UJEB delegation of students attended the BBYO International Convention (IC) in Denver, Colorado, where they joined more than 4,000 Jewish teens, educators and philanthropists from over 40 countries. In June-July another group travelled to Pennsylvania for BBYO’s International Leadership Training Conference (ILTC), where they honed their leadership skills with 250 teens from all over the world.
