Jewish Federation of Metropolitan Chicago / Jewish United Fund sponsors the Walk With Israel, a special event to raise money for and show solidarity with Israel.
Any Walk participant who raises $100 or more will have the ability to assign a $100 Israel Experience Voucher. Vouchers can be designated for young people through age 23 and may be redeemed from the summer following 9th grade* until the individual's 23rd birthday for use toward an approved Israel experience program.
Each person can submit only one Walk With Israel Voucher from any given Walk event, but Vouchers from different Walks can be submitted together. For example, the person named can redeem only one 2001 Walk Voucher, but he or she can redeem both a 2001 and a 2002 Walk Voucher.
*Families may use a portion of their Israel experience funds (SKIP, Gift of Israel, B'nai Mitzvah Certificates, and Walk With Israel Vouchers) for 8th grade Israel programs, such as IsraelNow or day school trips. Please contact our office at firstname.lastname@example.org to make sure that your trip is eligible and then use the 8th grade Israel Experience Savings Request form (for day school trips) to redeem your funds.
