Calling all Host Families: The Teen Israel Exchange is BACK!


The wait is finally over! Emerging from a Covid hiatus.

We are thrilled to reintroduce one of our most beloved JCFR Partnership Programs – the Teen Israel Exchange.

Brace yourselves for an incredible summer experience as we open our doors to 7 Israeli teens hailing from our sister city, Hadera, for an exhilarating 12-day adventure, from July 16th to 27th.

Are you ready to embark on an extraordinary journey of hospitality? We are seeking enthusiastic families like yours to be part of this transformative experience. By hosting a teen, you’ll create lifelong memories and forge profound connections.

The teens have a full schedule of activities during the day. As their gracious hosts, we kindly request your assistance with carpooling and meals. Host families will have many opportunities to join in on the fun! (As seen in the the photos during past Teen Israel Exchange programs)


Take advantage of this extraordinary opportunity to open your hearts and homes to these teens.
