The Rubin Israel Experience
October 28-November 7, 2018

Philanthropists and visionaries Ron & Pam Rubin want to invest in YOU. The Rubin Israel Experience is an incredible opportunity for young Jews who have never traveled to Israel to do so with their peers at no cost.

It’s not often that such an amazing, life-changing opportunity is offered to the young Jews of St. Louis – but Jewish Federation of St. Louis has one! Become a part of The Rubin Israel Experience and have the trip of a lifetime.

It is the hope and expectation for this unique Israel experience to inspire participants to be full of energy and passion for Jewish community involvement upon their return. This trip demonstrates the Jewish community’s dedication and investment in those young adults (you) who possess the ability to step up and be in the “driver’s seat” of their community. The Rubin Israel Experience is open to St. Louis residents ages 27-45 who have never before been to Israel.

Applications for 2017 are now closed. For more information about the trip, contact Mindee Fredman at
