Israel & Overseas

Around the World, Keeping Jewish Life Strong

Doing a World of Good

Federation’s Israel & Overseas department is all about celebrating, advocating and building meaningful relationships with people in Israel and around the world. We’ve helped hundreds of Detroiters and Israelis forge lasting connections through immersive experiences and programming. When Israel and Jewish communities worldwide are threatened, we come immediately to their aid. Amid rising anti-Semitism, Jews around the world know they can rely on our unwavering support. Because no matter where we live, we’re all part of one global Jewish family.

Bringing Israel to Detroit

Sharing cultures, creating lifelong friendships and developing deeper understandings, this is how Federation’s Israel & Overseas department brings Israel to Detroit:

Since 1994, Federation has partnered with three Israeli municipalities in a region known as the Central Galilee. Partnership2Gether turns Israel from a homeland to a home away from home, and everyone is invited to participate.
