The Latest Update from Temple Sholom of Chicago’s Israel Trip
The trip is so much fun! In the last few days we have hiked around the Golan Heights and the Galilee. We have also celebrated the Torah and our past and future B’nai Mitzvah students on Masada. We have floated in the Dead Sea and we have enjoyed the delights of Jerusalem, the most beautiful city in the world (arguably). In the days ahead we will explore ancient Jerusalem, enjoy Shabbat at a sister Reform congregation outside Jerusalem, and visit the Christian Quarter of Jerusalem. We will also learn from a great expert on Israeli politics, Dr. Reuven Hazan. Our trip will conclude with a visit to the Jerusalem Holocaust Memorial and a festive closing dinner.
