Spiritual, Historical, Personal
Our Missions aren't passive experiences. They're active adventures, engaging the mind, heart, soul, and body. We'll explore local communities and their histories while traveling by jeep, boat, plane, and foot to make up-close and personal contact with the many marvels of Jewish existence. You'll witness firsthand the extraordinary efforts of organizations like the Joint Distribution Committee and the Jewish Agency for Israel while discovering and responding to the challenges facing Jewish communities today.
Not Your Typical Tourist Vacation
Federation Missions are journeys -- voyages to see firsthand the history, status, and future of the Jewish people. Our Missions are opportunities to meet new people, make new friends, explore roots and learn more about Jewish culture. They offer an occasion to travel to fascinating and remote locations -- not only Israel, but also the former Soviet Union, Poland, the Czech Republic, Hungary, and Latin America. Wherever you find a Jewish community and wherever Jews have made their mark, you'll find a Federation Mission.
This is your once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see the impact the Jewish people have had on world culture, to see how Jewish communities interact today, and to personally witness and be inspired by the role every Jew can play in supporting the continuation of the Jewish people wherever they may live.
