Leadership Missions to Israel

For more than twenty years, The Jewish Federation of Greater Los Angeles has hosted study visits to Israel for elected officials and key community leaders. These trips offer an exceptional opportunity to educate our participants about Israel's unique attributes and challenges, and to see first-hand how its government, private and non-profit sectors respond creatively and proactively.

On these trips, we share with our participants the rich histories of Christianity, Judaism and Islam, tour the State, and expose them to issues that impact their work on a regular basis. We introduce them to the many similarities between Israel and California, such as a large agricultural base, challenges surrounding water use and supply, centers of technological development, and the varied immigrant communities. Itinerary highlights from past trips have included political briefings with Israeli government officials, meetings with progressive figures in cutting edge technologies in the fields of water, agriculture and alternative energies, and discussions with leading social service providers.

This is just one of the many ways in which we are reaching out to those in our community to create relationships and build a better Los Angeles.
