Momentum Yearlong Journey

The MOMentum Yearlong Journey empowers women to connect to Jewish values, engage with Israel, take action, and foster unity, without uniformity. It includes a profound, personal 8-day experience in Israel, during which women explore the Jewish homeland, take in inspiring Jewish wisdom, and join a global Jewish sisterhood. Back home, women channel their energy and passion personally, professionally, and communally, and continue their journey through educational and leadership programs.

Sample Itinerary

“Since I've returned home from my MOMentum Trip, we’ve lived our lives a bit differently; we attend Jewish classes and we have expanded our relationships within the Jewish community. This December, we hope to travel to Israel with our three kids.” Michelle Z.
Toronto, Canada
“Momentum helped me forge powerful connections with Israeli women and become part of a strong community. Momentum showed me that I have a responsibility to make a difference for the people around me, my neighborhood, my city, and the Jewish people. I always valued Jewish traditions, but I realized that Jewish wisdom could guide me in every area of my life.” Ethel Y.
"MOMentum allowed me to gain clarity in my life. It also gave me the opportunity to fall in love with Israel in a new way. Learning more about Israel and exploring the country’s spiritual sites connected me more deeply to the Jewish homeland. I returned home feeling revitalized and excited to share my love of Israel with my community." Raquel B.
Madrid, Spain
"Growing up, only my grandparents had Jewish names. My family had lost touch with its Jewish roots. Because of Soviet times, we were disconnected from each other, from religion, and from having pride in our Jewish identity. During my MOMentum experience, I chose the Hebrew name, Ora, which means light. I want to bring light to my family, my community, my friends, and my business partners. I don’t yet know exactly who I am. But I do know that I want to reconnect and empower my Jewish and feminine self.” Rita A.

Safety and Security

The safety and well-being of our Momentum participants and staff is paramount to us.

We adhere strictly to the safety and security standards, guided by the protocols established by the IDF’s Homefront Command (Pikud HaOref). With a history of safely facilitating meaningful experiences, Momentum has brought over 23,000 participants to Israel since 2009.

What does the trip cost?

For our participants, this is a heavily subsidized trip.  Each participant on our women’s trip receives a $3,950 scholarship, 80% provided by Momentum and 20% provided by your Partner Organization.


The participant pays her airfare,  a $360-nonrefundable registration fee, and a $500 refundable deposit. 

Can I come on a different date with a different city?

The short answer is “No.” A vital part of the Momentum experience is creating community at home, with participants in your city and each Partner Organization invests in each of its participants to make this happen.

What if I have already been to Israel?

We give priority to applicants who have never been to Israel, or who visited before they turned 18, but many of our participants have visited Israel in the past. Apply and speak to your Community Leader for more details.
