The mission of NSJF is to inspire, strengthen, celebrate and perpetuate bonds with Israel and to share responsibility for world Jewry.

Missions and Travel
JFNS offers opportunities for missions to Israel and Jewish sites across the globe in conjunction with Jewish Federation of North America and other communities. On a mission, participants of all ages find adventure, explore Jewish heritage and see dollars at work. Travelers on missions meet local residents, community leaders, area experts and political personalities from around the world. Missions may include Western Europe, Argentina, the former Soviet Union – and, of course, Israel.
