Our Programs

Our staff of youth movement alumni from Israel and the Diaspora embody the unique characteristics of youth movement leadership.  Using our skills in informal education techniques and group building, our programs move beyond being just a facilitator of content to being an educational experience.  We regularly engage with issues in Israeli society and the Jewish world in order to constantly be learning and building new programs for participants in an effort to create the best educational experience for your group. 

Our programs come in the form of lectures, tours, workshops, day-long seminars, Shabbat seminars and courses and stem from the themes listed below.  Our workshops and seminars include a tour aspect in order to provide a tangible side to the content we are talking about - an invaluable educational tool.  If you are interested in partnering with Hechalutz to run your entire trip, please contact us.

Hechalutz Tiyulim

We believe that those who visit Israel should also develop a deep connection to the land. As such we are committed to providing a positive hiking and camping experience to anyone looking for an adventure in the Israeli outdoors.
