Israel & Overseas

The Israel & Overseas Department builds local community connection to Israel, funds and helps implement overseas designated projects, and participates in the collective support for world Jewry.

Missions to Israel and to other overseas Jewish communities continue to be Detroit Federation’s finest product for achieving its overall vision: strengthening Jewish identity, building Jewish community, and growing Jewish philanthropy.

Through missions and exchange programs, Detroit Federation’s Israel & Overseas Department enhances individual experiences through ongoing, people-to-people relationships. Strengthening Jewish communities in Israel and around the world has always been, and remains, a top priority for the Detroit Jewish community.
