Federation extends open enrollment for Edie and Paul Rosenblum Gift of Israel Program
by Rachelle Stein

"Somehow, when kids return from an Israel program, they're different. I've seen it in my son and his friends. They're more centered, as if they've unearthed a new source of energy and focus." Parent of a 16 year old Israel Trip Participant

The Jewish Federation of Greater New Orleans has extended its open enrollment period for registering for the Edie and Paul Rosenblum Gift of Israel Program through September 30, 2009.

During this period all families with children entering Grades 3-10 in 2009-2010 are invited to enroll in this outstanding program without incurring any penalties.

Don’t miss this chance to gain access to a Federation match of up to $2,000 and up to $400 from your participating synagogue which can be used for any approved group trip to Israel of at least four weeks.   Participants may use the money at anytime between completing 10th grade and age 23.
