The 2013 Pre-General Assembly Mission to Israel

November 4-12, 2013


Imagine a mission that has it all: Hikes through northern nature preserves and visits to spice markets and wineries. Ancient historical sites and hi-tech start-ups. Encounters with cutting-edge artists, new immigrants, and Israelis from all walks of life. Opportunities to learn about co-existence initiatives, and a magical Shabbat in Jerusalem. The mission leads right into GA, the Jewish community’s signature annual event.

Jewish Federation communities from across North America will come together in November for a pre-GA national mission to Israel. Be a part of it -- you’ll experience Israel in a new way, forge a special connection to the land and people, and gain a deeper understanding of the important work of Federation.

At GA Israel 2013, North American Jews and Israelis will come together to redefine and enhance our partnership.  Together we will strengthen Israel to navigate the challenges of today and prepare for tomorrow. Be there to hear top speakers, gain new perspectives on Israel, and participate in challenging conversations about Federations and the global Jewish community.
