The Jewish Federation of Greater New Orleans is excited to embark on a unique mission to Israel in July 2022, with the opportunity to also visit the United Arab Emirates.  

By expanding its traditional cultural exchange mission to include the introduction of new potential business relationships in targeted industries, the 2022 Federation Mission will give participants a dynamic experience that presents them with new potential business relationships in each of the targeted industries and introduces them to the beauty and opportunity of Israel. 

The mission will feature a traditional “Explore Israel” track, as well as four business tracks engaging participants from throughout the region, including:

  • Medicine/Biotechnology/ Healthcare
  • Energy/Sustainability
  • Transportation/Port/Maritime
  • Cybersecurity/Innovation

Israel is a world leader in the science, technology and innovation sectors. The rapid growth of the technology sphere in Israel has earned it the moniker, “Start-Up Nation,” and has made it a major player on the international business stage. Although Israel was established less than 75 years ago, its influence on the world of technology and business has been substantial.

The United States is Israel’s single largest trading partner. Through the Federation’s Mission, you can connect directly with Israeli business and government leaders. Louisiana companies interested in learning about Israel, expanding into the area, or increasing their business in the market are encouraged to register.
