Honeymoon Israel Cincinnati

Honeymoon Israel provides immersive trips to Israel for locally based cohorts of couples that have at least one Jewish partner, early in their committed relationship, creating communities of couples who are building families with deep and meaningful connections to Jewish life and the Jewish people. The trip is open to all eligible couples with diverse backgrounds, including interfaith and Jewish couples.

The hope and plan for young couples who participate in Honeymoon Israel Cincinnati, both Jewish and interfaith, is to incorporate Judaism into their relationships in a way that is meaningful to them. The return on this investment is hopefully a renewal or deepening of a Jewish partner’s Judaism and an added interest, participation, and commitment to the history and culture of Judaism for non-Jewish partners. And if they have children, we would hope to see Judaism incorporated into their children’s lives as well. To help facilitate that, the Mayerson JCC and the Federation will engage the couples who go on Honeymoon Israel before, during, and after their trip.
