Join a Mission to Israel
Louisville community missions to Israel, organized by the Jewish Community of Louisville, always offers a number of unique opportunities. They bring together diverse groups of people, many of whom do not know each other until they travel together, and offer participants a wide range of experiences that help them discover the excitement of Israel and the strength and breadth of Louisville’s connection to the Western Galilee and the Jewish State.
