RootOne Grants

Dear Participants and Families of the Teen Mission to Israel, 

We are thrilled to announce that we have been accepted as a RootOne grantee for the summer 2022 season! RootOne is a new initiative that helps connect thousands of Jewish teens to Israel, by lowering the financial barrier to participation in immersive summer trips and by investing in the educational quality of those experiences. 

  • Each registered participant of the Teen Mission to Israel is eligible for a $3,000 RootOne voucher to lower the cost of this experience. To facilitate the voucher process, please see below our designated, unique link for our registered 2022 Teen Mission participants.
  • The voucher application includes all the steps needed for RootOne to process and approve your eligibility for a $3,000 RootOne voucher, including additional pre- and post-trip educational enhancements. We will facilitate and engage in these opportunities together. More details will be shared in the upcoming weeks.

This generous partnership with RootOne helps reduce cost barriers of the Israel Teen Mission for families in our community and grows the number of teens we can send to Israel. In addition, we are excited to enhance the depth of all participants’ experiences, in advance of, during, and following our time together in Israel!

  • If you have questions regarding the RootOne voucher opportunity for the Teen Mission to Israel, please contact Becca Fishman at
  • If you have questions regarding financial assistance and scholarship through Tamarack Camps, please contact Andrew Belsky at
  • If you have general questions regarding the Teen Mission to Israel, please contact Zach Goldberger at

We can’t wait to work with RootOne, a seamless partner for Tamarack Camps, the Jewish Federation of Metropolitan Detroit, and affiliate congregations, with shared values, mission, and vision! We look forward to sharing additional information in mid-January, and in the interim, encourage you to complete your RootOne voucher application as soon as possible. 

Although today, Israel has restricted most international travel, we’re confident that we will be traveling to Israel this summer and are constantly monitoring this reality.

We look forward to a healthy, happy new year! 

All the best,
The Teen Mission Team
