Encountering Israel with J Street U

Through the Lonnie Dounn fellowship, J Street U is thrilled to offer opportunities for American students studying abroad or traveling to Israel to witness the Occupation firsthand. With partner organizations, we offer heavily subsidized tickets for American college students to tour the West Bank, East Jerusalem, and more. If you are interested in being connected with J Street U in Israel, please reach out to [email protected].

The Campaign

In 2018, J Street U student leaders began a campaign asking Israel trips and programs to “Let Our People Know” by including multiple narratives and addressing the occupation while touring in Israel.
