Israel Missions

For nearly two decades, one of Beth El’s clergy has led an annual congregational mission to Israel. Traveling together in a bus from the Lebanese border in the north to the Negev in the south, traversing the Golan Heights by jeep, bicycling or jogging along the Tayellet running the length of Tel Aviv adjacent to the Mediterranean, and walking along the mystical streets of Safed and the holy ground of Jerusalem, we experience Israel and all its wonders. As an added bonus, we make new and often remarkably enduring and caring friendships among our fellow congregants and strengthen our relationships with clergy.

Beth El Trip to Israel, March 4-15, 2018

Rabbi Harris will be leading our next trip to Israel from March 4-15, 2018. The trip is for adults, and is for “5th-timers” — those who have been to Israel before, and would like to explore new and interesting places. Stops will include Tel Aviv, Jaffa, Shafdan, Ramla, Jerusalem, Wadi Quelt, Netiv Haasara, the Ramon Crater, Ein Avdat, Eilat, and Petra, among others.
