DISCOVER A NEW CULTURE:
Justifi trips take you into the heart of the local culture; to the must see tourist sights and then off the beaten track to where no other tourists ever go. Meet locals from all walks of life, learn some of the local language, religion, customs, folktales and beliefs, taste the local food and see the bustling cities and breath-taking nature. Balance all this by gaining a real insight into the issues facing the country from some of the inspirational people working there to make a real change.
One of the purposes of life, as well as one of the most fulfilling and meaningful things to do, is to positively influence the world around you. Based on a lot of research on how to avoid the pitfalls of short term voluntourism, Justifi gets involved in some hands on volunteering through local organisations who are working with some of the most vulnerable people in society. Building, planting, painting and teaching English to kids and creating a lasting impact on the lives of all involved. (Click here to see a blog post about short term volunteering).
GET A NEW PERSPECTIVE ON LIFE AND THE WORLD:
Justifi trips take you out of your comfort zone and empower you to find clarity, joy, direction and inspiration in your life. Facilitated discussions, mindfulness and meditation sessions, morning stretching and experiential education help people tap into their potential, break down obstacles and move forward happily and healthily in life. Through traditional Jewish wisdom, start implementing practical tools towards personal mastery, leadership and contribution.
AWESOME GROUP ADVENTURE EXPERIENCES:
Then obviously there is lots of fun to be had with an incredible group of beautiful, like-minded Jews from all backgrounds, walks of life, observance levels and locations. All Justifi trips have their fair share of hikes, swimming in natural water sources, adventure activities and of course nights out spiced up with some glasses of the local tipple. Make great friends, see great sites, do great things ...
