Abstract:

Israel’s war against Hezbollah during July and August, 2006, provided a context for assessing the impact of programs bringing Jewish students and young adults to Israel. How did American Jewish young adults who participated in such programs respond during the war and do they compare to their peers who had not traveled to Israel on a peer-oriented program?
