Central to the mission of our Federation is enhancing and strengthening our relationships with Jews in Israel and overseas. It is the mission of the Israel and Overseas 703 Committee to facilitate and help define those relationships for our community. The committee evaluates, recommends and advocates the extent of our relationships and allocation levels to our existing international partners: the Jewish Agency for Israel (JAFI) and the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee (JDC); it also evaluates and implements existing and potential partnerships.

The committee is also tasked with researching and developing other Israel and overseas initiatives providing value-added opportunities to engage additional human and financial resources in our community. It works to maximize fundraising and marketing potential by advocating for programs and services provided in Israel and overseas by our beneficiary partners, promoting missions to Israel and overseas (as well as other vehicles for active engagement on the Israel and overseas agenda), connecting to other partnerships involving the Tidewater Jewish community with Israel, and promoting the centrality of Israel as an essential element of positive Jewish identity.
