Sue & Alan Kaufman & Family
Teen Mission to Israel

Jewish Federation of Metropolitan Detroit
with Community Congregations & Tamarack Camps


Our hearts are heavy after the recent attacks across Israel. Our entire Detroit Jewish Community, along with Jewish communities around North America, stand in solidarity with the people of Israel and pray for their safety.

Our initial plan was to open registration for TM24 this Monday, October 9, at 9 am. The start of registration will be postponed. As we continue to monitor the situation, please look for additional updates. 

Most importantly, our focus today is on the safety of our brothers and sisters in Israel. Until then, we pray for peace. 

Am Yisrael Chai.
