2019 JWRP Trips to Israel

Women's JWRP Trip

Men's JWRP Trip
November 11-18

The Jewish Federation of Omaha (JFO) and The Jewish Women's Renaissance Project (JWRP) are jointly sponsoring trips to Israel for men and women committed to the work of the JFO. The trip focusses on learning, leading and community.

What is JWRP?
The Jewish Women's Renaissance Project ( was established in 2008 by eight diverse women in the Washington D.C. area who saw a deep need to create an inspiring trip to Israel that will empower women to change the world through Jewish values that transform the women, their families and communities.

What's unique about Jewish Federation of Omaha's partnership is that we have the opportunity to bring men and women committed to the work of Jewish Federation of Omaha to experience Israel with a focus on learning, leading and community. Through the JWRP Israel curriculum, we will learn Jewish values that elevate our leadership and through our trip experiences, we will connect this learning to the programs and projects in Israel that our dollars support. 

Requirements to participate: Be Jewish or identify yourself as Jewish. This includes converts and special cases where the man or woman is married to a Jew and raising the kids as Jews, be physically and emotionally healthy, be willing to participate in pre and post programming with the Jewish Federation of Omaha and have an interest in becoming more actively involved in the Jewish community.
