Celebrate Israel@70 on this fabulous trip

We’re finishing up our year-long celebration of Israel’s 70th birthday with a special mission this October—and we want YOU to join us!

Go for a camel ride in the Judean Desert and experience a traditional “hafla” lunch followed by an opportunity to learn about the culture of the Negev Bedouin, their relationship to Israel, and the challenges facing their community. Meet Israel Defense Forces (IDF) soldiers at the Palmachin Airbase and see the Special in Uniform project first-hand. See the sights of Tel Aviv, including the Taglit Innovation Center, Independence Hall, and the Florentine neighborhood, where a Graffiti Tour will unveil some of the city’s urban secrets and trends.

You’ll have the option to “choose your own adventure” along the way, making this a mission like no other. Customize your trip with a visit to Mount Zion, a nature hike at Sataf, or an exploration of the winding alleyways of Yemin Moshe using the poetry of Yehudah Amichai as a guide.

A trip like this typically costs $6,000, but travel with the Jewish Federation and you can experience Israel for just $2,450 per person (plus airfare). Further lowering the price, we have subsidies available for: Individuals under 50, current and past Federation Leadership Institute (FLI) participants, Jewish educators, first trips to Israel, and individuals over 60—and you may qualify for more than one subsidy!

Don’t miss out on this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
