Welcome to the Israel Desk of the Jewish Federation of Western Massachusetts! We promote Israel and educate our community about Israeli society and culture with the goal of strengthening our ties and commitment to the Jewish homeland.
The Federation coordinates many programs every year with our Israel partnership region of Afula-Gilboa.
Our next Emissary Program is being planned for 2020. If you are interested in learning about becoming a host family, inviting the emissaries to dinner or learning more information about this program, please call (413) 737-4313 or click here to contact us by email.
