Mission to St. Petersburg and Israel

“Jewish Federation missions are exceptional! You travel with other like-minded people while having a lot of fun. Everyone has a different connection to each site we visit and the stories are powerful. Missions open your heart to perspectives different from your own, adding so much to the experience! You meet incredible people from all over the world who are connected to the work of Federation. For me, the best part is seeing up close how our organization is transforming lives.”

Mitch Lieberman

Mission Participant, Cuba and Morocco

“Typically when my wife and I travel to foreign countries, we like to find out something about the Jewish culture there. Jewish Federation gets that. Traveling on a mission takes you off the beaten path to tiny shuls that are still in operation, local schools that Federation supports and organizations helping Jews in need. Federation runs excellent missions that are organized and well planned. The Jewish perspective is what it’s all about as well as seeing the impact of the Federation worldwide.”
