AJ is Israel-Bound in 2022! (October 13 to October 27)

In October, AJ will be embarking on our first Israel tour with me as the congregation’s rabbi. I worked with our tour operator, Keshet, and our amazing Israel committee to come up with a great itinerary! We’ll be leaving for our two-week trip on October 13, 2022 — Hol HaMoed Sukkot! That means that we’ll be spending the first four days of the trip in Jerusalem celebrating Sukkot, Shabbat, and Shmini Atzeret/Simhat Torah. You’ll be able to grab falafel or schwarma and eat it in a sukkah. You’ll also be able to check out a variety of shuls from Jerusalem’s Great Synagogue to a Modern Orthodox minyan where women read Torah to the Conservative synagogue on Agron Street.

We’ve tried to make the trip affordable — $6,226 per person, double occupancy, airfare included. For an upgrade to Premium seats on the flight, add $1,060.  The detailed itinerary is here. At times, the group will separate into two tracks, one for “Pioneers” and one for “Veterans.” (See addendum below.)

Bernie Dishler is chairing the Israel Committee. Send him an email to let him know if you’re interested, if you have questions, or if you’re ready to put down a deposit. 

As Hillel said, “If not now, when?”

ADDENDUM TO ORIGINAL POST:
Fewer people have signed up than we imagined which has turned out to be just fine. We’ll be spending more of our time all together, and the price has dropped. (Pricing above is accurate.) There will only be two days, one in Jerusalem and one on the way to the Negev, when we’ll be on two different tracks. The new itinerary is here
