S’DEI WHAT?

Camp S’dei Chemed is a world-class touring program in Israel for orthodox Jewish teens ages 12-18,  with campers from across the USA, Canada and Europe.

It all began in 1969 when no one ever dreamed of bringing American youth to Israel. S’dei Chemed pioneered the way. Today, Sdei Chemed is an intensive 6 week experience combining learning, touring, chessed and exciting activities. We have a beautiful campus in Yerushalayim as well as overnights in the North and South, a weekend in Tzfat, and a 3 day visit to Eilat. Our campers will explore the length and breadth of Eretz Yisrael. They will be inspired by many renowned Jewish personalities as well as knowledgeable and experienced tour guides who will instill a love of Eretz Yisrael that will last a lifetime. With 45 years of experience in the camping and touring business there is no one that does it better. There is a reason why everybody that spent a summer in S’dei Chemed says it was “the greatest summer of their lives!”
