JOIN US FOR THE TRIP OF A LIFETIME.
Come for a tour. Leave with a life changing experience.
ABOUT THE TRIPS
A gift for your service.
Every year, Zahal Shalom invites delegations of wounded IDF veterans to America to embark on two-week tours in and around New York City. With these trips, we aim to express our gratitude for the service and dedication of our heroes who were injured during the time in the IDF. The trips are completely free for veterans—we pay for and cover round-trip airfare, housing, meals, transportation, and daily activities.
ABOUT THE EXPERIENCE
Uplifting for you.
Inspiring for us.
Our delegations share there experience with Jewish families in America. Through day trips, dinners, and parties, veterans and hosts develop long-lasting bonds that extend far beyond the two-weeks. Our local hosts are proud to host the veterans to express their gratitude for their service, and we hope that in return veterans are uplifted with the solidarity developed with our host families.
ABOUT THE ITINERARIES
Incredible experiences to empower our veterans.
Our tours offer unparalleled opportunities for veterans. With host families by their side, veterans will explore the best New York City and Washington D.C. have to offer. Some experiences past delegations have enjoyed include riding in the Celebrate Israel Parade on motorcycles, meeting members of Congress in Washington, watching Broadway shows, visiting the top of the Empire State Building, celebrating on rooftop bars in Manhattan, and coming together for pool parties at host families' homes.
Countries, oceans and many miles separate us physically, but we are forever a family. There are so many incredible people that work tirelessly to make these two weeks memorable. I am so blessed to have been apart of such a life changing experience.
