March 20-28, 2023


The Jewish Federation is excited for our rescheduled Centennial Trip to Israel! It’s a special year for Israel…its 75th anniversary…and we’ll be there to celebrate!
We have developed a fantastic itinerary that will include experiences planned for 2020 and some new/different ones, as well.


The opportunity for participating in a group b'nai mitzvah is available. See the 2023 Trip WEBSITE for the draft itinerary and registration.

You may absolutely register for the trip
without attending an information session.

NOTE: Covid-related travel requirements are still very much in flux so it is premature to speculate on vaccination and/or testing requirements at this time. We will keep you posted with as much advance notice as possible prior to our travel in 2023 so you can plan accordingly.
