Two thousand years of waiting to be restored to our homeland—two thousand years of longing, wandering, and suffering— came to an end in 1948. And nearly seventy years later we still celebrate the miracle.
We will visit ancient and modern sites including: Caesarea, Crusader city of Acre, Port city of Haifa, Bahai Shrine, Rosh Hanikra, Safed, Tel Dan and Banias, Jordan River, Golan Heights, Sea of Galilee, Beit Shean, Old City, Citadel Museum at David’s Tower, Cardo, Israel Museum, Yad Vashem, Mount Herzl Military Cemetery, Judean Desert, Qumran Caves, Ein Gedi Oasis, Dead Sea, Masada, Independence Hall, Palmach Museum, Neve Zedek, Old Jaffa.
Some of those sites, we have visited on every trip, some we have never been to together. This year, as we are traveling in the summer, we will be enjoying some outdoor adventures. Many of those who traveled on previous trips will be returning again, which only proves that you owe it to yourself to experience what would make us yearn to return.
Each year we end Yom Kippur services and the Passover Seder by saying, L’shanah ha-ba’ah B’Yeruslayim, Next Year in Jerusalem.
This year, live out the dream.
This year treat yourself to a Chanukah present that will literally change your life.
As promised, while not subsidized like Birthright, the price will be over $1500 per person less than comparable trips departing from LAX. We already have over 20 passengers booked, and our limit will be approximately 40. In addition, if you are planning on traveling with us on El Al, the airline tickets must be reserved and paid for ASAP.
