What People Are Saying

For me, the best part was meeting new friends, learning and growing with them through this experience. Gaining a better understanding of our Jewish identity and discovering common ground.

Do not think twice!! This is a once in a lifetime opportunity!! Living in the old city of Jerusalem, (prime real estate, seriously) while getting an awesome internship and learning about life!! Such a memorable, valuable and incredible way to spend a summer!! I don't know why there aren't more programs like this!

I have staffed 19 Birthright trips and a few other programs, Way More Israel truly captures all of the wants and desires of my past participants..it brings the big highlights of Israel, touring, study, learning, and a deeper connection to the the land of Israel, our people and heritage, …as well as Israel’s off-the-beaten-path charm. I believe that the beauty of the land of Israel is one of its greatest treasures. What makes THIS program unique? It’s the multi-faceted experience with the perfect mix of informal education, an always laid-back atmosphere, and a spirit of adventure. As we say on Wall Street, we have a winner here!!

My Way More Israel summer proved to be a transformative summer. I made amazing friends, I lived 20 steps from the two lions that are right by an entrance to the Kotel, and I had great classes with wonderful rabbis and teachers. The classes were great, but I always felt like I wanted more. These mornings were just a taste of the Jewish education I had never received. For only $350 (plus airfare) I was able live in the Old City, have an internship, and attend morning classes. It sounded too good to be true, but true it was!

For the last 30 years, Heritage House has been there for Jews travelling through Israel and looking to live in and experience Jerusalem, and the Old City in particular. Their programs, like Way More Israel, provide a safe, insightful and comfortable way to spend extra time in Israel and give the participants a wonderful base from which to continue their journey. Check it out, you wont regret it.
