Spirit of Israel – Community Mission 2017 »

One Great Big Jewish Family

Jewish Federation missions are travel experiences unlike any other.By discovering the past and exploring the varied lives of our people in locations as diverse as Israel, the former Soviet Union, Latin America, Morocco and China, we become part of the vast global community and share the challenges of our Jewish family around the world. Unique to these missions is an opportunity to be inspired, witnessing Federation’s impact in action – changing lives through our overseas partner agencies.

Missions are active adventures – engaging the mind, heart, body and spirit. While each mission is unique, all guarantee travelers a powerful connection to their Jewish identity and sense of purpose. While exploring the sights, sounds and tastes around them, mission travelers have exclusive access to visit with Jewish residents and briefings with Jewish community leaders and government officials. Visits to projects where our community’s generosity is making a difference showcase the extraordinary efforts of our partners on the ground, like the American Joint Distribution Committee (JDC) and the Jewish Agency for Israel (JAFI).
