Q. What sponsored or free trip options are there, and under which conditions does RAJE offer them?
- Level 1 Israel trip to Israel or Euro/Israel – Conditions: never received a grant from Olami/Israeli Government, aged 18-30 at the time of the trip. The partial subsidy is possible for those who have already done a similar trip in the past or aged 31-35, BUT, since the full cost of the RAJE trip is around $6k-$7k the subsidy is still a few thousand dollars.

- Azerbaijan trip – when offered, conditions TBA.
- State trips – i.e. Heritage Retreats/Sinai Retreats (only if applicant approved by Heritage Retreats org) – usually we refund the Heritage fee and the ticket after the trip.
- YJP International and National trips or Shabbatons approved by RAJE. Conditions: Age and marital status (singles or couples) are different for each trip – SUBSIDY after the trip – $600 with advanced completion or $400 with basic completion.
