JU MAX Approved TripsJU MAX Approved Trips

Below is the complete list of approved trips to Israel. Choose the trip of your choice and your cost is either $200 or FREE depending on the program you choose (plus the $99 deposit). Other options and scholarships are available as well.

$200 Options

The following trips combine travel, fun, and some Jewish study. They are the perfect follow-up to a Birthright experience and cost only $200 with your JU MAX Israel travel voucher. Spots are limited, so apply as soon as you are accepted.

FREE Options

The following trips are more study-oriented than the trips listed above and they are FREE with your JU MAX Israel travel voucher (flight included). You must participate for at least 3 weeks on one of these programs in order to use your voucher (if you don't have time this summer, save your voucher for the winter break). Many of these programs are yeshiva-style and therefore gender specific, please make sure you check out each program carefully before you apply!*

Free tuition and $1000 towards flight

Generous Flight Scholarships Options

If you are interested in a yeshiva or seminary experience, generous flight scholarships are available for students who want to study at the following programs.

A monthly stipend is available for students enrolled 3 months +

Internship Options

Join one of our exciting internship programs in Israel and receive $600 towards your flight. Total cost of the 2 month program in Israel is only $350

Partial flight subsidy and/or partial tuition scholarship

Alternatively, you may cash in your voucher to receive a partial flight subsidy and/or partial tuition scholarship for one of the following programs:

  • Save a Child's Heart
  • Livnot : 2 week minimum
  • Otzma
  • Scholarship amount will vary depending on the program. You will be responsible to cover the difference. If you are interested in this option, please contact us after you are accepted to Max to learn more.

*Acceptance to an Israel program is not guaranteed and is determined exclusively by the particular program you apply to; each program is unique and has its own set of criteria.

Your Israel trip voucher specifically goes to cover flight and program-related costs ONLY. 

Depending on the program you are accepted to, you may need to travel to a hub (like New York or LA) on your own. The Israel trip voucher can NOT be used to cover additional flights to a hub airport or any other travel or trip-related costs.


In all cases, even when your trip is 100% subsidized, you will still be charged a $99 processing fee. Click here to learn how to earn back the $99 fee.
