Israel Trip

Every year, JLSA brings a group of Harvard Law students on a 10-day leadership mission to Israel over spring break. From hiking Masada and touring the Old City of Jerusalem to meeting Israeli legislators and Supreme Court justices, the trip includes visits to major historical, religious, and cultural sites throughout Israel as well as meetings with senior Israeli officials and thought leaders. The trip is not designed to advance any particular position beyond Israel’s right to exist as a Jewish democracy within secure and recognized borders. The trip is heavily subsidized and very popular among HLS students, and it is one of JLSA’s signature programs.
