For most Jewish North American college stu- dents interested in spending some time in Israel there is a plethora of organized pro- gramming options available. These trips tend to focus on providing these young adults with the means of exploring their ancient heritage through a variety of wide-ranging tours and educa- tional experiences throughout the country.

However, this spring one diverse group of college stu- dents from Brandeis University plans on visiting Israel on a 10-day mission, and then using the experience not as an “end” but as a “means” towards creating a new cul- ture back on campus that centers on bridging the gaps between different peoples, passions, and ideas.
