For the Reform teen looking for the ultimate in life experience, the Eisendrath International Exchange High School in Israel is the time of a lifetime. For over 40 years, the Reform Movement has been sending youth to Israel, with this four-month or six and a half weekaccredited high school nestled in the Judean Mountains serving as the premiere program. Students live together, learn together and grow together as a community as they explore four thousand years of Jewish memory, learn Hebrew, and come to know Israel as their second home.
