Jewish Federation Family Mission to Israel

December 19-28, 2019 (Extension Available)


Rabbi David Ackerman and Nomi Shapiro


Designed for every generation to enjoy together, the Jewish Federation’s Family Mission will be a memorable adventure for the whole family.

Visit the Golan Heights, where parents will be briefed on security challenges while kids enjoy a unique game of capture the flag. Visit a kibbutz and learn about organic farming. Have Shabbat dinner with lone soldiers from the IDF. Be a real archaeologist and dig for a day at Bet Guvrin. Volunteer at Leket, the largest food bank in Israel, supported by the Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia. And what family trip to Israel would be complete without a hands-on visit to a chocolate factory?
