Updates from Israel
Updated 1/13 with photos! See below. Yesterday we spent the much of the morning and part of the afternoon at Har Herzl and Yad Vashem. Both destinations were jarring and emotionally impact. In our unpacking and sharing session later in the day, I was impressed with how well many of the participants were able to [...]
Here’s a photo of our group at Masada. We woke up at 4:30am, rolled out of bed, fueled up and we’re off to hike the mountain just in time for sunrise. The view was beautiful and it was a moment of gratitude. We toured the remnants of the old fortress, listened to the tale as [...]
We have finished our time in the North and heading to Jerusalem for Shabbat. In the North we saw two of the holy cities; Tzfat and Tiberias. A Jeep tour along the Syrian boarder helped all of us see the history and better understand the layout of the conflict going on right now with the [...]

Excitement, exhaustion, and elation are just a taste of the range of emotions our participants have been feeling throughout their first half of the trip. [...]
Shalom family and friends, We made it to Israel! After nine and a half hours in the air, we finally landed at Ben Gurion Airport where we were joined by Ashley and our Israeli staff. Our travels were smooth and many of us even managed to get a few hours of sleep. From there, we [...]
