IAC Eitanim is the flagship entrepreneurship immersive project-based learning experience for young leaders that will brings together Jewish- and Israeli American middle and high school students. Participants connect to modern Israel, create meaningful social connections, and gain both hard and soft skills all while igniting their “Israeliness.”
The Eitanim program is named after Major Eitan Balachsan Z”L, the commander of Israeli paratrooper elite recon unit. He was killed on February 23, 1999 in Lebanon during a special operation. His legacy of leadership, commitment, and dedication will always remain an important part of our community.
