Israel Programs

 

As a reflection of our people's deep connection to the State of Israel, Calgary Jewish Federation offers a number of ways to participate in our ongoing relationship with our brothers and sisters in Eretz Yisrael and to be an informed advocate.

Partnership2Gether

 

Partnership2Gether is a program which links Diaspora Jewish communities with cities or regions in Israel in order to develop “living bridges” and a deep connection as Jewish people. The coast to coast P2G program links six Canadian communities with the Etzba Hagalil region of Israel.

 

Our Mission: To build and strengthen relationships between people and communities in Coast-to-Coast Canada and in Etzbah Hagalil through programs that build Jewish identity and promote the welfare and wellbeing of all partners involved.

 

P2G projects include:

• Gesher Chai: Living Bridges between schools in Calgary and in Israel
• Projects focusing on formal and informal education opportunities, leadership development, volunteerism, youth, infrastructure and regional development which strengthen life in Etzba Hagalil, a region which is essential to the security of Israel.

Birthright Israel

 

Birthright Israel offers the gift of a free, educational 10-day peer group trip to Israel for young Jewish adults age 18-26. The trip allows participants to make new friends, make connections to Israel, its people, and the Jewish community. Open to all Jewish adults ages 18-26 who have not participated in a peer educational trip to Israel since they turned 18 nor lived in Israel past the age of 12.

 

*NEW* Trips are now offered for adults 27-32 years of age.
