Summary Thousands of young North American Jews visit Israel every year on organized, educational, heritage tours. Israel Experience Programs present religion, homeland, and nation to participants in compelling and sometimes unsettling ways. Supported by Jewish communal institutions, these programs are encouraged for their presumed value in combating assimilation and a loss of Jewish culture. Faydra Shapiro suggests that their real success may lie elsewhere.
