Why Go to Israel?
The success of this program is due in large part to the collaboration of The Jewish Foundation of Cincinnati and the Jewish Federation of Cincinnati. At the time that the grant initiative was created, the Foundation Trustees determined that the organization most suited to run the program on a day-to-day basis was the Jewish Federation. The Jewish Federation is responsible for outreach, intake, program publicity, information and referral on the range of available trips and trip providers, maintaining contact with parents while their children are in Israel and all general administration.
