REALITY Community Builders is a powerful journey in Israel designed for inspiring leaders who create and sustain influential communities, networks, fellowships, movements and other groups that either challenge the status quo or strive to make a positive impact in the world.

This experience offers you the unique opportunity to explore the myriad of social obstacles and opportunities that compel you to create inspired intentional communities. You will go on this exciting exploration with other influential leaders who are focused on projects and initiatives that are vast and wide-ranging.

Throughout the week, you will visit the world’s most sacred and storied sites, helping to expand your knowledge about this complex country and its culture. You will also have the chance to learn about the Kibbutz Movement and other unique forms of communities around Israel as you traverse across the country.

We hope you return home with lessons and learnings that you can use to help strengthen and grow your communities so you can make the greatest impact on the causes that drive you.
