We strongly suggest the acquisition of comprehensive medical and travel (‘Cancel for Any Reason’) insurance prior to your arrival in Israel.

The Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh does not currently, and will not in the future, provide any medical insurance coverage while on the Mission. Any medical insurance coverage desired must be purchased by mission participants.

Travel Insurance: There is no trip cancellation insurance offered by Jewish Federations of North America (JFNA)/Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh. Note: JFNA/Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh highly recommends that all mission participants review their own personal insurance coverage needs with their insurance advisors to determine if additional travel insurance is required. Additional travel insurance could cover items such as reimbursement for trip delay, missed connections, sickness and/or accident medical expenses, lost baggage, personal effects, baggage delay, etc. If you are interested in “cancel for any reason” trip insurance, it must be purchased within 15 days of making your trip deposit or purchasing your flight, whichever occurs first.

Here are some providers should you wish to purchase additional insurance. Inclusion on this list should not be construed as an endorsement by the Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh.
