Giving a child a trip to Israel is easier than you might think. The Gift of Israel Savings Program, created by Federation and participating synagogues, helps Miami-Dade County families start saving early for their child’s Israel experience while enjoying the benefit of matching-dollar grants from the community. Since the program’s founding in 1993 as Passport to Israel, more than 500 young adults have visited Israel through this simple savings plan. For more information, email GiftofIsrael@JewishMiami.org or call 786.866.8431.

If you’re looking for a great way to promote your business and support Miami’s Jewish community, Federation’s Proud Business Partners program makes it easy to do both. These valuable corporate sponsors are recognized in a variety of ways and at key Federation community events. Most importantly, their generosity underwrites event costs, allowing Federation to use Annual Federation/UJA Campaign dollars to support critical needs in our Jewish community. For details, contact Emily Stone at 786.866.8414 or estone@gmjf.org.
