Jewish Federation of San Diego County is providing a substantial subsidy for members of our Jewish community between the ages of 25-45. The total subsidized land cost for those receiving this subsidy will be $2999. If you feel you do not need the subsidy, and instead choose to make those funds available so that others can participate, during the registration process, you will have the option to decline the subsidy, which will enable us to deploy those resources. You can choose to opt-out and pay the full CommUNITY trip cost of $3,999, to maximize our impact in the community.
