Plan Ahead! 

We are already making plans for our 2019 trip to Israel, led by Rabbi Diamond.  Past trips have met with wonderful accolades and several repeat travelers!

The 2019 trip will be in early June and includes 9 nights superior first class hotel reservations, 9 breakfast buffets, 1 welcome dinner in Tel Aviv plus 6 other dinners on our tour; 1 Bedouin lunch and camel ride in the Negev and lots more! Land services include 10 days of private touring with English speaking guide and private transportation on air-conditioned coach. This is a wonderful opportunity for a religious, cultural and historical tour of Israel.

Compete information and details will be announced soon! This tour is limited to only 26 people. If you are interested and would like more information on schedule, costs, reservations etc. as it becomes available, please send your email address to Arnie Harris at arnieh@embarqmail.com .
