New Funds Available for Jewish High School Trips to Israel


The URJ is now providing a voucher for $3250 toward any URJ high school summer trip to Israel after your teen’s b’nai mitzvah, when they become age-eligible in 10th grade.

Teens who already received a $250 NFTY certificate at their bar/bat mitzvah will still be eligible to apply for the additional $3000 Root One voucher, making their total discount the same. If you are interested in one of these URJ Israel trips, and applying for these funds, please email Tara Marcussen at tmarcussen(at) This $3000 voucher can also be used towards the Camp Stein Israel trip.

In addition, don’t forget to apply early for the Harold and Jean Grossman Teen Israel Experience Incentive funds of $750 for trips that are 16-21 days. They also have funds available for semester and school year in Israel programs. To find out more about the Phoenix Central Jewish Philanthropies’ Grossman Fund go to
