Honeymoon Israel provides immersive trips to Israel for locally based cohorts of couples that have at least one Jewish partner, early in their committed relationship, creating communities of couples who are building families with deep and meaningful connections to Jewish life and the Jewish people​.

Our goal is to make you and your family feel welcome in the Jewish community and to inspire you to incorporate Jewish values into your lives in whatever way works for you. We think the Jewish community has a lot to offer the world, and we’d like to see it grow, so we’re promoting an inclusive view of Jewish life, including partners from other faiths and people who might traditionally have been excluded.

We consider ourselves unique in having a broad agenda to welcome any couple with at least one Jewish partner to have a great experience and decide on your own terms how to be involved with the Jewish community. We want to welcome and connect, not push. Honeymoon Israel is a completely inclusive organization – we welcome Jewish/Jewish, interfaith and LGBTQ couples.

Honeymoon Israel is supported by funders throughout the Jewish community who share our goal of welcoming and building community for a diverse range of Jewish families, including interfaith couples.
