Applications open for Maccabi GB Challenge Tour 2018.

Plans are in place and applications are now open. This unique trip will take a group of up to 14 young adults (16- early 20’s years old) with mild to moderate learning difficulties around Israel for 10 days.

Please also find a link of a video from our most recent trip in 2016 which shows you more about this fantastic trip.


This was feedback from a mum after speaking to her daughter on the phone a week into the trip:

Thank you so much - so lovely to hear from my daughter today who by the sounds of things is having just the best time. She actually sounded like a completely different child. Thank you, thank you, thank you - amazing what Israel, friends, independence, sun and a wonderful caring group does for them. Xxx

It is a truly unique and special trip. Please do be in touch to talk it through further either by email to jessica@maccabigb.org or call Jessica Overlander-Kaye on 0208 457 2333.
