Our Centennial Mission to Israel, July 2-10, 2023

What an incredible week it was! Five hundred people – representing all aspects of our diverse community – sharing a journey of learning, of discovery, or connecting in profoundly meaningful ways. For more than 120 participants it was their first trip to Israel, and for more than 300 it was their first Federation mission, while for others it was one of many trips but no less inspiring. After years of planning and preparation, our Federation’s Centennial Mission – celebrating our 100th birthday and Israel’s 75th – is now complete, but the memories will surely last a lifetime.
