Gift of Israel

Team up with Jewish Federation to give the gift of a lifetime!

Gift of Israel is a cooperative savings program, co-funded by the family, the synagogue, and the Jewish Federation of Southern New Jersey (through contributions to JFund) that strengthens Jewish identity by helping students afford a trip to Israel.*

*Gift of Israel may be used for Religious School students for a confirmation trip or for Day School students for an 8th grade trip, or a similar program.The funds are intended to cover a portion of the cost of an Israel program. Prices of Israel programs vary and the amount of Gift of Israel funds available may not cover the entire cost.
