Israel and Overseas


The Federation builds connections to Jewish life overseas through local programming, through our vibrant people-to-people connection with Modi'in, Israel and by allocating funds to service partners in collective support of world Jewry.
 
Missions to Israel serve to strengthen Jewish identity, build Jewish community, and grow Jewish philanthropy.
 
Strengthening Jewish communities in Israel and around the world has always been, and remains, a top priority for our Federation.
