Achva Programs
 
 
 

Achva East is a super-fun tour of the Eastern United States for boys and girls finishing 8th grade.

Achva East, one of the oldest Achva programs, starts out from New York and goes through Pennsylvania, Ohio, Illinois, Missouri, Tennessee, North Carolina, Virginia, and Maryland while doing great stuff and fun activities all along the way.

Have a blast doing great activities such as Whirlyball, speed boating, hiking, Zorbing, paddle surfing and whitewater rafting, plus lots of major attractions such as the Willis (Sears) Tower, top rated Cedar Point Amusement Park, and the Gateway Arch, among many others. Please check out the "Itinerary" tab above, you will be surprised how many great sites, attractions and activities we pack into 22 days.

Achva East is specifically geared for post 8th-graders with a great combination of exciting sites and fun attractions as well as some educational and spiritually refreshing activities as well. We will spend Shabbat together with some great Jewish communities such as in Detroit, MI,  and Memphis, TN where you will get to know friendly local families and have a relaxing Shabbat to rest up from a packed week of activities and travel. The experienced counselor staff will guide you every step of the way and ensure you have the best experience possible.

Achva East was completely filled to capacity in 2018 and many applicants were then turned away.  Please register early for 2019 to assure a spot.  For more information, call 212 929-1525 ext.181 or e-mail achva@youngisrael.org.
