Israel & Overseas

 

Strengthening Jewish communities in Israel and around the world has always been a top priority for the Federation. We build a local community connection to Israel, fund and help implement overseas designated projects, and participate in the collective support for world Jewry.

 

The Federation enhances individual experiences through ongoing, people-to-people relationships, missions, and exchange programsMissions to Israel and to other overseas Jewish communities serve to strengthen Jewish identity, build Jewish community and grow Jewish philanthropy. For more information on upcoming missions, email jfgnh@jewishnewhaven.org.

The World Called. We Answered.

2015 was a challenging year. Terror attacks bred tension and fear and natural disasters wreaked havoc on millions around the world. And Federations responded, touching more Jewish lives than anyone on the planet. In 2016, we need you. Join the movement.
