Mach Hach BaAretz is Bnei Akiva’s summer tour of Israel for teens completing 10th grade. It is the largest and most popular program of its kind, with over 350 participants every summer. Mach Hach offers a wide range of diverse programs to match the varied interests of each individual.

In Bnei Akiva, love of Israel is not a slogan, but a passion. Mach Hach has led tours of Israel for over 45 years, in good times and bad. Helping our participants develop an everlasting bond with Israel is at the forefront of our mission. This goal guides every aspect of our touring experience, from staffing to itinerary planning to program development.

Mach Hach is not just another tour of Israel, but an authentic Israel experience. Our alumni can attest that they “lived Israel” for the summer. With new and innovative programs being added into our itinerary, this summer will be like no other!

An elite and innovative midrasha, Midreshet Torah V’Avodah gives exceptional recent high school graduates a multifaceted, immersive and enriching gap-year experience like no other.
