Now you can’t afford not to go. 

For the first time in over a decade, the Detroit Jewish community will be traveling to Israel together. Thanks to an anonymous donor, the Jewish Federation of Metropolitan Detroit is announcing that additional needs-based subsidies for the Motor City Mission are now available, making this once-in-a-lifetime journey to the Homeland more accessible to more people. 

From March 12-21, 2023, the Motor City Mission will bring hundreds of Jewish Detroiters together for a meaningful adults-only experience featuring the whole range of Israel’s rich history, heritage and culture. Highlights include itinerary items unique to this journey alone, including interactive site visits with Federation’s partners JAFI, JDC and World ORT, plus time in Michigan’s Central Galilee partnership region.  

“We’re thrilled to be able to announce these additional subsidies. It’s a fantastic opportunity to help those in our community make their dream trip to Israel a reality,” said Lisa Broder, Motor City Mission Co-Chair. “Our goal is to make the mission as affordable as possible for as many people as possible. We really encourage people to apply,” added Mission Co-Chair Bill Goldstein. 

Applications for the new subsidies are being accepted now through August 8 (recipients will be confirmed the week of August 15.)  These subsidies are in addition to one you may have already received, are based on financial need, and are not guaranteed for everyone. Applications are confidential and all applicants will remain anonymous during the review process.
