Hear from the 2016 mission co-chairs:
"I have been on four different missions to Israel in the past few years. I have loved every one of them and they have all changed my life for good. When you go on a mission, you become more inspired and fall deeper in love with the amazing beauty of Israel. You feel the importance of becoming more involved in your community and your Jewish world. And you create a strong Jewish bond with a global community and make long-lasting friendships"
-Lauren Abes
"Going on the NYL Summer Mission is about being a part of something greater than yourself, being inspired and changing the world together. It’s about building a better future through Jewish Federation with an extended family of new friends from across North America."
-Matt Davis
"Now more than ever, I feel a profound responsibility to support the State of Israel and encourage young adults to build strong bonds with our homeland. The NYL Summer Mission will strengthen your Jewish identity, linking your heart and soul to the land of Israel."
-Michael Teplitsky
