The Jewish Federation of Greater Portland recognizes the power of teen travel to Israel. For youth already connected to our local Jewish community and those just beginning a connection and everyone in between, a formal Israel experience creates memories and impressions that last a lifetime. In recognition of the importance of our teens having a transformative Israel experience, Jewish Federation is helping to offset the cost of teen Israel travel, making it just a little easier to have this experience.
