Almost six hundred Jews are in Israel this weekend on a "Mega Mission" organized by the Jewish Federation of Montreal. The eight day trip, which started on Wednesday, is the Jewish communal group's "most ambitious mission to Israel in close to 20 years," according to a release put out by the body.

The Federation pointed out that a fifth of participants are first time visitors to Israel and that the trip showcases a broad range of Montreal Jews with the oldest participant aged 94.

The Federation trip will visit Montreal's "sister region" of Beer Sheva and Bnei Shimon to see the work being done on the ground by the Jewish Agency, Keren Hayesod and other bodies to which the Federation has donated.

The Federation will honor the Bronfman family for its philanthropy at a dinner in Latrun on Tuesday.
