February 26 - March 7

Connect to Israel. 
Connect with our Community. 
Connect through the Federation.
When you join with your fellow Houston neighbors and friends on this vacation, you’ll be delighted by the sights and sounds of our homeland. Let yourself be surprised by your emotional connection to the land and people you meet. 
Be awed by the great impact our community makes. Let’s  dine and dance and laugh and celebrate on Israel Connection 2017. 
This is your time to give yourself the gift of Israel.




“Let us show you the Israel we know, which we’re sure you will fall in love with. You’ll meet Israelis and leaders and see Israel as only possible when you travel with the Federation.”

-- Joy & Joe Kaplan, Israel Connection Chairs
