Rubin Israel Experience expands age range for no-cost Israel trip

Applications are now open for the sixth “Rubin Israel Experience,” an all-expense-paid trip for young adults who have never been to Israel. The trip is offered and staffed by Jewish Federation of St. Louis and is underwritten by philanthropists Ron and Pam Rubin. There are 10 spots open to young adults in the St. Louis area who want the opportunity to see Israel in a fun and meaningful way. In the past, the age range for participants was 27 to 40 years, but this year the age range is being expanded to include those up to 45 years old.

An information session to find out more about the trip will be held at 7 p.m. Thursday, March 28 at the Federation Kopolow Building, 12 Millstone Campus Drive. The group will travel Oct. 6 to 16, 2013. Applications are now available at
