Join us on a Volunteer Mission to Israel.

Travelers will bear witness, participate in hands-on volunteer projects that meet pressing needs, and experience how Cleveland supports Israel in times of peace and war. See how the Campaign for Jewish Needs and Israel Emergency Campaign dollars are supporting Israelis through unprecedented times.

The mission will spend time in Tel Aviv, Jerusalem, the South (including Kibbutz Kissufim, Federation’s new partnership community), and our sister community of Beit Shean/Valley of Springs, which is home to internally displaced families.

Volunteer experiences may include:

  • Picking fruits and vegetables at local farms
  • Helping displaced families from the north and south of Israel
  • Food packing and distribution
  • Meeting with bereaved families and soldiers to show support
Please note: this trip will include physical activity and participants should be in good physical health to participate.
