Life changing trips for jewish idealists
Justifi has taken hundreds of Jewish travelers on inspiring adventure trips all over the world since 2010. So get ready to throw some gear in a bag, fly to a bucket-list destination, experience a new culture with inspiring people, and make your lasting impact.
The only question is "Where Will You Go?"
Communities are healed when good people travel right. Justifi runs short term adventure trips that combine travel and cultural immersion with sustainable volunteer work. On every trip, Justifi groups experience an insider’s view of the places we visit, courtesy of our local guides and partners, and give back through volunteering on important projects that improve quality of life in a conscious and sustainable way.

HE COULDN'T BELIEVE HIS EYES
Two years after his Justifi trip to Thailand, Josh came back as a madrich (leader) and couldn’t believe his eyes.
When he left Tom Karen’s center in the small village of Ban Huay Sak one hour north of Chiang Rai, there was one classroom which could hold about 20 kids, an outhouse for a toilet (that means a very deep hole dug into the ground, surrounded by a small wooden hut) and a few books, toys and one 1970’s Yamaha kids keyboard for the kids to play with.
On his return, there was a second classroom full of books and maps and educational posters, musical instruments and art supplies, there was a restroom building with three toilets and a shower, there was the foundation for a new classroom, and the walls were covered in pictures of the summer camps and weekly lessons that Tom’s center now provides.
Tom Karen himself cannot believe what has taken place in such a short time. “Before I met Jamie and Justifi, I was just a tour guide trying to find work showing foreigners around Northern Thailand. Now I am getting to live my dream, helping my community to get educated, running English, Chinese, math and science workshops, working to prevent the our children from getting trafficked to bars in Bangkok and neighboring countries, creating programs for the elderly and sponsoring orphans in their education through the support of monthly donations from Justifi alumni. On top of that my wife is now on the local council representing women’s rights and I have gone back to university at 42 years of age to get a degree in English!”
