2282 Are you a teen who wants to go to Israel? Tidewater Jewish Foundation (TJF) can help!

TJF is pleased to announce the Simon Family Passport to Israel Fund, providing grants for Israel trips. 

The purpose of this program is to provide funds to enable and encourage Jewish students (age 13 – 18)* to participate in an Israel Trip experience.

The applications are now closed. 


Trips should be:

  • Educational
  • Peer group of young people traveling together
  • Organized by a non-profit organization, educational institution or religious institution
  • Staffed by qualified personnel
  • Structured with a predetermined itinerary

Grant is for students living in the Tidewater area

All Jewish students between the ages of 13 – 18* may apply

Please note:  A student may not be awarded this grant more than once; Trips will be funded up to 30% of the eligible expenses with a maximum of $6,000 per student.

For more information, contact Barb Gelb at bgelb@ujft.org.

*(Students over 18 can apply but they must indicate why a Birthright Israel trip will not meet their needs at this time)
