This study focuses on one central question: How can policymakers encourage more North American Jews ~ and particularly younger Jews — to visit Israel, and take part in educationally intensive programs? Our study is based on a mail survey of 1,736 American and Canadian Jews, with a large oversampling of teenagers and university-age youth. The study is one section of a much larger project examining educational programs in Israel for visitors from the Diaspora. The project, which analyzes both policy and development, is conducted by Nativ Policy and Planning Consultants of Jerusalem for the Jewish Education Committee of the Jewish Agency.
