What are JFGP Missions?
JFGP Missions are travel experiences unlike any other. Yes, we deliver exciting adventures, scintillating experiences, and cultural discoveries. Sure, we are able to offer you exclusive, insider access to residents, community leaders, area experts, and political personalities. Yet a JFGP mission is something much deeper. What makes each mission truly unique is its ‘sense of purpose,' guaranteeing our travelers a heightened appreciation and connection to their Jewish identity. Our goal is to create travel experiences imbued with meaning, giving our participants the chance to visit with members of their extended Jewish family and to come face to face with the shared heritage, traditions, and values that unite us all. Mission participants are sure to come away with a newfound understanding of where we've been as well as a vision of where we're headed.
What happens on a JFGP Mission?
Your day-to-day activities, travel logistics, housing accommodations, and most meals will be taken care of by our experienced and dedicated Mission staff. While on your Mission, you can expect to visit historical and culturally significant sites, meet with new immigrants, share a meal on a kibbutz or a local home, and hear in-depth briefings from top scholars and regional officials.
