CME seeks to promote mutual understanding through contact and interaction with different cultures through study visits and meetings with representatives of diverse perspectives. The program introduces students to the challenge of human diversity in Israel, where different civilizations, religions, national identities, and ideologies from around the world converge.


In addition, participants have the opportunity to visit two of the Seven Wonders of the World: the Pyramids of Egypt or the Lost City of Petra in Jordan.
