Israel & Overseas


The Israel & Overseas Department builds local community connection to Israel, funds and helps implement overseas designated projects, and participates in the collective support for world Jewry.


Missions to Israel and to other overseas Jewish communities serve to strengthen Jewish identity, build Jewish community, and grow Jewish philanthropy.


Through missions and exchange programs, the Federation’s Israel & Overseas Department enhances individual experiences through ongoing, people-to-people relationships.


Strengthening Jewish communities in Israel and around the world has always been, and remains, a top priority for the Federation.



“As I entered the program, I felt that my life at that very moment was changing.”
