In recent years, the effects of a vicious cycle have been felt, in which flaws in Jewish education have resulted in reduced participation in Israel trips. The author argues that in light of our experience over the past several years, the North American Jewish community must develop compelling education from which an Israel experience flows rather than pinning all our hopes exclusively on the Israel trip.
