Participate in an Israel Experience

The Federation’s Israel scholarship program enables teens to participate in an Israel experience to develop and enrich their Jewish education and strengthen Jewish identity. The Federation supports need-based scholarships. For the 2016 season, the Federation awarded nearly $83,000, helping 20 teens to participate in organized trips to Israel last year. For the 2017 season, scholarships will be awarded in the spring. Applications for the 2018 season will open in the fall of 2017.
