During this very special ten-day trip, you will encounter one of the world’s most complex and culturally -rich societies, a delicate web of Hinduism and Buddhism. As you travel from the vibrant capital, Kathmandu, to the remote villages of the Himalayan foothills, you will closely engage with women, farmers and young people who are struggling with poverty, climate change, and urbanization. Through unique interactions with local leaders and the individuals they help, you will gain an insider’s perspective into the challenges Nepalis face and the urgency for change. You will see how Israelis and the Jewish people can have a transformative effect by partnering with impoverished populations and learn about the global issues that need to be addressed to create a more just and beautiful world.
There will also be time for fun as you take in the stunning scenery and culture of Nepal-view the sunrise over the Himalayan peaks, practice your yoga, shop at local markets and eat authentic Nepali village food while giving a hand in Tikun Olam.
