Picture it: it’s March 2022, you hop on a plane overnight and wake up in bustling Tel Aviv with 39 of your newest friends. No, it’s not Birthright, that was years ago… It’s NextGen’s 40 Under 40(ish) Journey to Israel!

We were just as bummed as you to find out that our 2020 trip was canceled, but now it’s back – and it’s aged exquisitely.

Seven days in Tel Aviv and Jerusalem kicks off with cocktails under the sparkling Tel Aviv sky meeting guests from “40 Under 40”. You’ll spend time learning about how Israel became (and remains) the Innovation capitol of the world and how its unique geographical position makes for some very interesting politics.

The cherry on top: it’s highly subsidized! Just $500+airfare (+ $100 for a giving circle experience with your trip-mates).

Ok, sounds great, but is this trip right for me? NextGen’s 40 Under 40(ish) is for “under” 40’s who are looking for a deeper connection to this beautiful land and are eager to change the trajectory of Jewish life in Atlanta when you get back. Whether you’ve been to Israel 100 times or if this is your first venture there (lucky us!), you’ll return to Atlanta with the knowledge and passion to be an even stronger and more effective leader, volunteer, and advocate for Jewish life.
