This winter break, bring the family together for a vacation that’s so much more than just a vacation. Join Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia’s family mission: ten jam-packed days of exploring Israel from December 21-31, 2017.

Make memories to last a lifetime as you climb Masada and float in the Dead Sea. You’ll whiz across the Golan Heights in a Jeep and explore Safed, the birthplace of Kabbalah, Jewish mysticism. You’ll meet IDF soldiers, spend a day on a kibbutz, share a meal with women in our Partnership2Gether region and tuck a note into the Western Wall. You’ll welcome Shabbat in Jerusalem. And after your family journeys its way across Israel along with other Philadelphia families — traveling together from the Golan Heights to the Negev, from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem — you will return home with new friends and an expanded Jewish community.

The Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia makes this getaway easy for you and your family by planning everything from touchdown to takeoff. All you need to do is relax and immerse yourself in everything Israel has to offer.
