Gift of Israel

Federation realizes the transformative effect a trip to Israel can have on an adolescent child, but also recognizes that the cost may provide a barrier to many families. The Gift of Israel Program, formerly Passport to Israel, is Federation’s solution! Beginning in 1st grade, families deposit $100 per year through 10th grades. The funds are then matched dollar-for-dollar by Federation and participating synagogues. When your child is ready to take his or her first trip to Israel, your investment, the matching grants and all accrued interest are dedicated to underwriting the cost of your child’s Israel trip.
