Health, Safety and Security
Lirom places the utmost importance on the health, safety and security of our students studying abroad in Israel. Lirom participants are covered by our personal health insurance plan and a Lirom staff member is available to them 24/7. Student apartments and dorms are situated in the safest locations in Israel. Participants under the age of 18 adhere to a strict curfew, and we enforce a zero tolerance alcohol policy. All of our participants are subject to a zero tolerance illegal drug policy.
Israel is statistically safer than most metropolitan areas of the United States. Nevertheless, Lirom clears all activities through appropriate agencies and authorities, uses private bus companies, and provides guards/paramedics on-site during all excursions. Our company’s safety standards exceed those of even the Ministry of Education, exemplifying our strong commitment to our student’s well being. Lirom representatives constantly monitor Israel’s ongoing security situation and our entire staff is ready and equipped to act quickly and alter plans if the need arises. Lirom is in constant contact with the security authorities that oversee student and tourist travel in Israel.
How we ensure maximum participant safety:
- All tours are coordinated with the proper authorities
- No trips or excursions take place in the Gaza strip or Palestinian Authority areas
- Armed guards and medics accompany all trips
- Each participant receives a 24/7 emergency contact number
- Private transportation is used for all excursions
