RootOne Voucher

The joy and adventure of a summer in Israel is more accessible than ever!

RootOne offers a $3,000 travel voucher for Jewish teens who travel to Israel with YALLAH! israel in the summer of 2024.

Yallah! Israel is a proud partner and grantee of RootOne LLC. Seeded through a generous grant by The Marcus Foundation and powered by The Jewish Education Project, RootOne provides major subsidies for trip participants (called RootOne Vouchers) and collaborates with trip providers to maximize the educational impact of these experiences. Visit for more information.

A RootOne Voucher, valued at $3,000, will be provided for eligible applicants upon the successful completion of the prerequisites laid out in their application. Each Yallah! Israel registered family will receive a link to complete this application. Please note that if you are eligible for a RootOne Voucher, all funds will be transferred directly to your selected trip provider and utilized to reduce the cost of your trip by $3,000. Vouchers are limited and are not guaranteed.
