From June 19 to 28, 290 people traveled to Israel with the Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh’s Centennial Mega Mission.
The mission offered program tracks for families, first-timers and veteran Israel travelers. The latter group had the additional opportunity on several of the days to choose from special interest itineraries encompassing archeology, art, culinary, politics, co-existence, outdoor adventure and more.
The mission also featured “mega events” for all participants to join together for special performances and memorable activities such as dancing with Israeli soldiers on an IDF base and descending Masada together with light-sticks after dark.
Mission participants also had the opportunity to see some of the programs and services made possible in Israel through local funding.
