Did you open an account to save money for Israel travel for your child between 1990 and 2010? You may still have money in a Firstrust Bank account under the Jewish Federation!

You can close out your Passport to Israel (PTI) account for one of the following options:

  • Use these funds for Israel travel if the child the account was created for is still 26 and younger by submitting the Use of Funds Form.
  • Get reimbursed to your bank account by submitting the Withdrawal Form.
  • Make a donation to the Jewish Federation’s Jewish Community Fund by submitting the Withdrawal Form.
