Give Your Child the Gift of Israel!

Studies show that an educational experience in Israel can have a transformative effect on a young adult. But for many families, a trip to Israel may seem financially beyond reach. That is why Temple Beth Sholom participates with the Greater Miami Jewish Federation Gift of Israel Savings Program. The Program enables families to begin saving early for their child’s Israel experience – and enjoy the benefit of matching-dollar grants from community sources. After you enroll your child, you will each make annual contributions of $100 to your child’s Gift of Israel Savings Program account. Temple Beth Sholom and The Greater Miami Jewish Federation will EACH contribute an additional $100 into your child’s account each year. Families deposit $100 a year for 10 years (1st through 10th grade). In addition, family members and friends can make contributions to each child’s account, a perfect Bar/Bat Mitzvah gift. Additional contributions are not matched. When your child is ready to take his or her trip to Israel, you will have a sizable savings, including interest accrued, to help underwrite the cost. For more information, please contact Barb Shimansky.

The SLJ would like to share an exciting opportunity for students ranging from first to tenth grade who are members of Temple Beth Sholom. The “Gift of Israel Savings Program” (Formerly, Passport to Israel) helps to provide students with the opportunity to participate in an educational trip to Israel during their teen years.
