During their time here, the photographers will visit sites from Tiberias to Masada and the Dead Sea, and cities from Jerusalem to Tel Aviv. Through their Instagram pictures, their followers will be exposed to Israel’s landscapes and culture.

The visitors, who come from Brazil, Spain, Austria, Russia, Britain, and the U.S., are being hosted in Israel under the auspices of the Once in a Lifetime project, a brainchild of StandWithUs, an educational organization for Israel advocacy. StandWithUs organizes a variety of delegations and projects that show Israel to millions of people a week via social media.
