Explore the World

Since the time of the Romans — and the destruction of the Temple — Jewish communities formed all over the world. Some disappeared and some flourished, but they became as different as their locations and their history. At Jewish Federation, we have a robust missions program and two powerhouse Israel programs for teens and twenty-year-olds. Connect to the global Jewish community with a transformational travel experience through Jewish Federation.
