Rafsodia: The International Raft Festival

“Rafsodia” is an two-day festival in which hundreds of youth movement members from Israel and around the world gather together to build their own rafts and sail them across the Kinneret.

Program Goals:

  • To strengthen the connection between Jewish youth from Israel and abroad.
  • To develop team work skills and mutual responsibility.
