Financial Assistance for Israel Study

The Jewish Education Center of Cleveland (JECC) administers several programs to help families save for an approved Israel Educational Experience and provide funds to make the trip a reality.  These programs are A Gift of Israel and JECC Financial Aid. 


In July, 1980, the Jewish Community Federation Endowment Fund approved a Comprehensive Financial Aid Program for Israel Experiences which was developed to demonstrate that an Israel learning opportunity can and should be an integral part of the Jewish education experience. The uninterrupted funding of the Program reflects our community’s commitment to make Israel experiences available to all Jewish youth.
