Like many of you, we are following the news in Israel with deep concern. This has been a difficult moment, and we are hoping for a more peaceful future.
Following the October 7th attacks, all remaining 2023 trips were cancelled. Although Israel remains engaged in an ongoing conflict – outside of the impacted border regions – the rhythm of everyday life is returning to the streets of Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, and beyond. Children go to school, adults go to work, restaurants are open, and the smells of open-air markets are back.
While the gravity of October 7th lingers, after considerable deliberation, we have decided to safely resume trips beginning on January 1st and onward.
If you are already registered for the Winter 2023-24 season, you may join an available trip in January, February, or March 2024. For everyone else, we expect registration for Summer 2024 trips to open in January, and you can complete a commitment-free application now to get started.
