Travel with Us

Jewish Nevada promises extraordinary experiences, cultural discoveries, and overall an astonishing journey. On your mission, you can expect to visit historical and culturally significant sites, meet with the local Jewish community, share a meal on a kibbutz or in a local home and hear in-depth briefings from top scholars and regional officials. This is your once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see the impact of Federation around the globe. Traveling on a mission with us will allow you to personally witness, and be inspired by the role each us plays in creating a stronger more unified Jewish community. Our missions aren't passive experiences. They're active adventures to engage the mind, heart, body, and soul.

 

What makes each mission truly unique is its sense of purpose and its unique connection to our Jewish identity around the world.

 

Our goal is to create travel experiences infused with rich spiritual meaning, intriguing learning opportunities, and fostering more Jewish culture around the world. Missions give each person the chance to visit with members of your 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 new-found understanding of our past, as well as a vision of where we're headed through our living-bridge connections.
