Project Mashabim is Shas Olami’s Israel Experience program, designed to connect Jewish teens with their homeland and with Judaism, in the spirit of the traditions of Sephardic Jewry. We bring them to Israel, where thousands of years of history unfold before their eyes. As well as exhilarating activities and high quality tourism, Project Mashabim enables young Jews to encounter Israeli society, delve deep into the Jewish experience, and connect with the eternal values and heritage of their grandparents.
Tens of thousands of Jewish teens are expected to participate in Project Mashabim in the next few years. By forging a strong connection to the roots of Judaism and a deep understanding of Israeli society, it will empower them to be proud of their Jewish and Sephardic identity, and achieve a decrease in assimilation and an increase in Aliyah.
