The Israel Center can help adults and families go on an organized trip to Israel!
Local synagogues often plan and organize trips for adults and/or families throughout the year. Additionally, Jewish Federation of St. Louis organizes a variety of experiences for special cohorts. Some of these are St. Louis-based trips and some are in partnership with Jewish Federations of North America.

Interfaith Couples Mission to Israel
May 12-21, 2019
Jewish community members and their spouses/partners who identify as an interfaith couple are invited to travel to Israel as part of a special cohort. Create community with your fellow participants as you learn from each other and navigate what it means to be an interfaith couple in St. Louis. This trip is designed to engage couples with Israel and understand the importance of the land, culture, people and economy from the perspective of each other’s faith. Supported by the Jewish Federation of St. Louis and the generosity of Stuart and Susie Zimmerman, this highly subsidized trip is open to eight couples. The land cost is fully subsidized. There is an optional group flight available for $995.00 per person. Applications are due November 9. Click here to register and learn more.
LGBTQ Mission to Israel
Like in America, the LGBTQ community in Israel is actively seeking equality and acceptance. Explore Israel through a unique LGBTQ lens at this historic moment in time. Experience Israel’s thriving, vibrant LGBTQ community against the complex cultural backdrop of the country. Witness the energy, tradition, and love as you travel with our Federation family.
Join us next summer, with mission co-chairs Lee Jason Goldberg of UJA-Federation of New York and Michael Bauer of the Jewish United Fund of Metropolitan Chicago. You won’t want to miss this incredible journey.
