Israel and Overseas

 

The Israel and Overseas Department builds local community connection to Israel, funds and helps implement overseas designated projects, and participates in the collective support for world Jewry.

 

Missions to Israel and to other overseas Jewish communities serve to strengthen Jewish identity, build Jewish community, and grow Jewish philanthropy.

 

Through missions and exchange programs, the Federation’s Israel and Overseas Department enhances individual experiences through ongoing, people-to-people relationships.

 

Strengthening Jewish communities in Israel and around the world has always been, and remains, a top priority for the Federation.

Portland Reaches Out Worldwide

 

The Overseas Special Projects Committee earmarks funds for programs in Israel that help vulnerable populations break the cycle of poverty, to empower individuals and families to improve their lives.

Headlines from Israel and Around the World

UIA understands that the Green Line is defined as the June 1967 boundaries, plus the City of Jerusalem, as defined by the State of Israel.
