Simon Family Passport to Israel Grant Recipient - Jordan Parker-Ashe
With the support of the Simon Family Passport to Israel grant, Jordan Parker-Ashe traveled to Israel to participate in the BBYO Passport Trek Israel program. As part of the program, Jordan took part in a five day wilderness immersion group hike which took them from the Mediterranean to the Sea of Galilee with amazing experiences she will never forget! If you have a teen or know a teen who would like to travel to Israel, this grant would help get them there.
