Over 2,000 years ago a young carpenter from Nazareth left his home to travel the highways and byways of ancient Israel and invited 12 men to come follow Him. In the tradition of all Jewish disciples of that day, they clung to His every word and learned to live the teachings of their rabbi. They heeded the call of their teacher, Yeshua (Jesus), and their obedience set in motion a chain of events that would leave the entire world changed forever.

The Zealous Israel Project (ZProject) is eleven months of servant-based discipleship in Israel for Christian young adults. Every year Bridges for Peace (Bridges) selects ten young people to volunteer with us, and be discipled in the footsteps of Jesus within our international Christian community. We see you discovering your calling, using your gifting, and growing in character throughout the year. Join our mission to support Israel, and build relationships between Christians and Jews in Israel and around the World.


You are invited to join a movement of young people who will encounter God in His Land through compassion, adventure and revelation.
