Passport to Israel ( Grades 3 and 7)
The Combined Jewish Philanthropies Passport to Israel Program is a special savings plan that helps fund a peer Israel experience (ie. NFTY, BBYO or Jewish camp) during the later high school and early college years. Visiting Israel is a wonderful opportunity to connect Jewish learning and develop lifelong ties with the land and the people of Israel. The Passport to Israel Program offers families the opportunity to partner with TCS and the Combined Jewish Philanthropies (CJP) to help make an Israel experience affordable. This program begins when a child enters the 3rd or 7th grades. Please note, the costs of Israel experiences vary.
The Passport Program helps families save, provides matching funds from TCS, matching funds from CJP, and investment income to help cover a good part of the cost. It is a risk-free way to save money for your child’s Israel experience. If for some reason you choose to leave the program or your child does not decide to go to Israel with a formal program, your money is fully refundable. There is also a generous matching of funds from both TCS and CJP so it is a way to earn free money toward your child’s trip.
