Insurance Information

JFMD does not provide trip cancellation insurance for mission participants and any coverage must be purchased for the mission on your own.

Note: JFMD strongly recommends that all mission participants review their personal insurance coverage needs with their insurance advisors to determine if additional travel insurance is required. Additional travel insurance could cover items such as reimbursement for trip delay, missed connections, sickness and/or accident medical expenses, lost baggage, personal effects, baggage delay, etc.

Each participant must make their own decision regarding insurance, as the Jewish Federation of Metropolitan Detroit is not authorized to give insurance advice.
