July 14: TM14 Update

July 14, 2014 | Jewish Federation of Metropolitan Detroit

Dear Teen Mission Parents,

Thank you again for your support, and, as promised, we would like to provide you with an update.

We continue to stay in close communication with our mission team on the ground in Israel, and together we are making decisions for plans going forward. Based on the information from our advisers, we are comfortable with the mission’s planned move to the north tomorrow.

The group will be departing their current location near Eilat on Tuesday morning and traveling on an authorized route to the north, where they will be residing near Tiberias, on the Sea of Galilee. We feel very secure with the groups’ accommodations and activities in this location, as well as nearby in the Central Galilee, Detroit Federation’s “Home in Israel.” It has been completely quiet in these areas. In the north, the teens will continue a full level of activity that will be consistently monitored for any necessary changes. We are also maintaining our contingency plans. The mission is scheduled to arrive Tuesday afternoon (Detroit time), and we will send a communication confirming their arrival.

The mission staff will continue to brief the teens on the situation and any changes, as appropriate, and will be available to them to answer any concerns. If you have questions, you may contact Amy Neistein, Director, Federation’s Israel & Overseas Department at (248) 205-2543 or email aneistein@jfmd.org.

Thank you.

Sherri Ketai, Chair
Scott Kaufman, CEO
