Program Itinerary

Bring Israel Home; Bring Home to Israel

The Jewish Federation of Broward Israel Mission is all about celebrating and enhancing the connections between the Broward Community and the People of Israel.  By exploring Israel from south to north, creating inspirational moments during people-to-people encounters, and learning about amazing initiatives throughout the country, this mission is an opportunity to showcase and acknowledge the Federation’s contribution to Israel and the way it impacts Israeli reality. Our goal is for the participant to feel that he or she has left an indelible mark in Israel while allowing Israel to leave an everlasting imprint on the participant.

The mission will create memories, bring up questions and open up meaningful conversations, enabling those memories to become an integral part of community life back home in Florida. 

 

We are proud to partner with Eshet Incoming to arrange this incredible program. Eshet believes forming a partnership with the client will result in creating the ultimate mission that takes into consideration the client’s needs as well as the “burning “ issues and current reality in Israel. Eshet’s motto is transparency, ongoing dialogue and taking that “one extra step” in order to get it all just right! 

While a draft itinerary is currently available for this trip, it is subject to change up until the activities actually take place. We will share regular itinerary updates until the week before the trip. Even then, the itinerary is subject to change based on a variety of factors, including scheduling, traffic, other opportunities and safety considerations. Our goal is to be as accurate and prepared as possible, giving a good representation of what we will do on the program, and recognizing that flexibility is essential.
