Join Our Mission Celebrating Israel's 70th Anniversary

We’ve been there from the beginning: Rescuing Jews from around the world and bringing them home. Building Israeli cities. Supporting programs to ensure that all Israelis have a shot at the Israeli dream. Now it’s time to celebrate. Join Federation leaders from across North America in marking Israel’s 70th anniversary year.

Israel and Federation:
the Journey continues.

But there is more to do. Get a first-hand look at Federation programs at work. Meet the people whose lives we’ve changed. And delve into the challenges before us: religious freedom, Arab-Israeli relations, the economic divide and the security challenges that continue to vex the Jewish State.

Check out the highlights.

  • Rediscover the dynamic Negev and see its transformation into Israel's newest high-tech and cultural hub first hand.
  • Journey to Jerusalem. Ancient. Beautiful. Intensely divided. After delving into the issues, take a break and explore its cultural and culinary scene.
  • Go north to communities in need, untouched by Israel’s “Startup Nation” economic engine, and learn more about the security issues they face on a daily basis.
  • Explore Tel Aviv differently. Meet immigrants who’ve founded cutting-edge businesses and social innovators pioneering new ways to tackle Israel’s pressing social challenges.
  • Top it off with the GA in Tel Aviv: the Federation Movement’s preeminent conference and one of the most significant gatherings of Israeli and World Jewry.
*Program in formation and subject to change.

Also scope out GA 2018 in Tel Aviv!

The GA is the Federation Movement's preeminent conference, bringing together Federation volunteer leaders and professionals from across the globe to discuss the biggest issues in the Jewish world. You don't want to miss it.
