If you dig beneath the surface of Israeli life you will find a new spirit alive in the country. It is the spirit of
young and old, drawing on ancient roots and a very Israeli willingness to improvise, daring to reinvent what
it means to be Jewish in the land of Israel. Join us as we set off on a Fall 2017 adventure of all five senses
that will take us back to the time of Abraham and catapult us forward into the 21st Century. As we explore
Tsefat, Tiberias, Jerusalem and Hebron – the four holiest cities in Israel – we will meet poets and politicians,
artists and musicians, archeologists and writers, kabbalists and theologians, thought leaders and community
activists, who are creating a new reality in our ancient homeland. We will experience the four elements of
“fire”, “water”, “air” and “earth” as we dare to “touch the soul of Israel”. This unique overseas adventure is
brought to you by Community Scholar Program, Congregation B’nai Israel of Tustin and Temple Beth El of
South Orange County in co-sponsorship with Jewish Foundation of Orange County. Group Leaders: Arie Katz,
Rabbi Elie Spitz and Rabbi K'vod Wieder.
To hear more about the details of the trip and to reserve your spot, please join Rabbi K’vod on Sunday,
