JET AZ TRIP: SOCIAL ACTION WITH TZEDEK AMERICA

This incredible trip for 8th to 12th graders is focused on putting Jewish values into action. Learn through direct action with a groundbreaking Jewish organization. Tzedek America works deeply with immigration and asylum issues, specifically from a Jewish lens. Our Shir Hadash youth will meet other Jewish teens from synagogues across the country, and have a uniquely Jewish social action experience.

The trip cost is $1,600 + airfare per student for Friday, February 16th, 2024 through Monday, February 19th, 2024 (airfare is approximately $220, so an approximate total of $1,820). We feel strongly that finances should not be a barrier to meaningful Jewish experiences for our teens - reach out to shanda@shirhadash.org to discuss scholarship options. The trip cost includes all food, all ground transportation, the hotel, and the robust Tzedek America programming which will involve experiences such as:

  • Visiting the border in Nogales
  • Meeting asylum seekers and DACA recipients
  • Studying texts with Rabbi Shmuely from Arizona Jews for Justice
  • Eating local, traditional, family food from immigrant-owned restaurants
  • Visiting and volunteering with the immigrant welcome center
  • and more!
