Interested in a trip to Israel ?
Rabbi Julie Danan is exploring a unique tour to Israel, April 27 - May 6, 2020, led by Mejdi Tours, a respected tour operator that has been used by some of our members,
This tour is suggested for adults who want to go behind the headlines for a deeper encounter with people and groups dedicated to building 
co-existence and peace between Israelis and Palestinians. The tour is suitable and designed for Jewish travelers and those of other faiths to explore the land and the issues together. 
Cost for the tour, including 9 nights' accommodations and many meals, will probably be under $3,000 dual occupancy, plus airfare of approximately $1,000.
