Though you may have been to Jerusalem before, experience it in a whole new way! We will celebrate Shabbat overlooking the Old City. You will have choices on how you would like to spend your time during Shabbat, participate in tefillot at a local synagogue, enjoy a walking tour of Jerusalem neighborhoods, or go for a leisurely stroll.
On Sunday we will begin our structured tours and conversations, exploring the city that is holy to three religions, by speaking with dignitaries and of course experiencing the art and flavors of this diverse city.
Ramat HaNegev: October 22-24, two nights, three days (Sunday-Tuesday)
An opportunity to get to know our partner region in an intimate way. While staying at the luxurious Beresheet Hotel as our home base, we will have the opportunity to speak with the Mayor of Ramat HaNegev Regional council and learn about the aspirations for the region, visit a desert organic farm where cherry tomatoes are grown through the miracle of technology and Israeli innovation, listen to a musical group made up of Jewish and Bedouin musicians, enjoy a VIP visit to Ben Gurion University and end our trip enjoying a field kitchen dinner with lone soldiers!
Tel Aviv: October 24 & 25, one night, two days in Tel Aviv (Tuesday & Wednesday)
Learn about the challenging history of Jaffa, explore the newly renovated Anu Museum for the Jewish people, see where the Start-Up Nation gets its name, immerse yourself in a workshop with Israeli entrepreneurs and spirit makers, tour the Culinary Institute of Israel and experience Tel Aviv’s world -renowned night life with an evening performance and much more!
