Teens are at the point in their lives where they want to develop their own unique character and identity, while also being part of a larger group. They are also passionate about correcting the wrongs that they see in society and assure a brighter future.
The Yaacov Herzog Center has taken on an important role here as we meet a few thousand teens every year for a series of encounters (including seminars, study days, volunteering, educational experiences, values clarification, Jewish Israeli identity, and leadership).
We work with religious and secular teens from all over the country; at times together and other times separately. Activities occur on our campus, at youth villages and schools throughout the country, and at a variety of settings where students experience Israel first hand.
