Designed for creators across all industries, this journey invites product managers, organizational consultants, visual designers, engineers, architects and other interdisciplinary scholars who approach problem solving with design thinking. Explore Israel’s ancient traditions and modern innovations to discover new creative ideas.

From the skyscrapers of Tel Aviv to the stone pathways of the Old City. From the solemnity of the Israeli-Syrian border to the energy of the Jerusalem market. From the top of Masada to the bottom of the Ramon crater...

REALITY brings inspiring changemakers from around the globe on a transformative journey that uses Israel as a prism to reignite their passion and potential for repairing the world.

Participants have the chance to explore their personal growth and professional development with a group of fellow leaders and with Israel as a complex and motivating backdrop.

Throughout the journey, leadership development activities challenge and inspire participants to reflect on their values and think deeply about how they can make an even greater impact within their fields and on their communities.

Reality was a deep dive into worlds and cultures I knew little about. We were challenged daily to ask questions about ourselves that we will all long be in the process of answering. A truly transformative week.
