Temple Micah Israel Trips

Temple Micah Israel Trips

We return to Israel to affirm our solidarity with the Jewish People, the Jewish State, and our vision of Progressive Zionism.

 

Israel Trip: December 8 – 16, 2024

With Rabbi Zemel

How has October 7 impacted Israel? What are Israelis and Palestinians thinking about their future? What are the hopes for a peaceful society of Jews, Muslims, Christians, Druze, and others sharing the land? What do Israelis think about the possibilities of a two state solution? What has become of the protest movement that dominated Israel from January 2023 until October 7? This trip will explore these questions and many more.

We will also celebrate Shabbat with our friends at Kehillat Birkat Shalom on Kibbutz Gezer and tour the newly opened Israel National Library. Finally, we will simply walk the streets of Jerusalem and Tel Aviv, visiting both Arab and Israeli neighborhoods. That is always an adventure. While this is not designed as a “first timers” trip, all are welcome to attend.
