Travel alongside Israel’s heroes.

FIDF missions are unlike any other. You will journey through history, society, and culture, taking in the iconic highlights of each destination, while gaining a unique perspective from those who are willing to sacrifice their lives to protect those very landmarks. You will delve into an unforgettable educational experience, led by inspiring mission leaders, marked by spirited conversations, and shared with newfound friends. The friendships are forever, the experience is everlasting.


What sets our missions apart is the extraordinary, exclusive access to the people who are setting the world agenda and to places normally off-limits. You will go behind-the-scenes to tour IDF bases, and you will personally meet with top officials and dignitaries. More importantly, you will have the opportunity to truly engage with the men and women of the Israel Defense Forces.


When you go on an FIDF mission, you become a part of something larger than yourself. Traveling to Israel with FIDF and getting to know the soldiers who safeguard Israel 24/7 is a true testament of your support. It could not be more meaningful to our brothers and sisters in uniform. As they stand on the frontlines, day in and day out, we stand in solidarity with them and show them that they are not alone. Each smile, each hug, and each word of encouragement from their friends across the ocean helps them immensely through their services.



“FIDF’s Leadership Mission exceeded all of my expectations! I gained a whole new understanding of Israel through the eyes of its soldiers and I will be forever be connected to this land of miracles through the relationships I made, the intellectual growth, and memories I will hold dear.”

“It’s one thing to read and learn about the Holocaust from books and films; it’s another to see it. When we paid tribute to the millions of men, women and children who lost their lives there by marching into the camp led by 50 IDF soldiers proudly flying the Israeli flag, it felt so good to show how proud, strong, and vibrant Israel has become.”

“The FIDF Women’s Mission was amazing! Beyond amazing! It was the best trip I ever took, not just to Israel, but anywhere. It was even better than my visit to the Great Wall of China or my African Safari!”
