Discover Israel with JNF

If you really want to see and feel the spirit of Israel, join Jewish National Fund’s “Israel’s Great Frontier – a Mission to the Negev.”  According to Gene Kay, Chair of the JNF Mountain States region, “this is a journey that promises to intrigue & enlighten as you travel from Eilat to Tel Aviv!”

Over the past six decades, Israel’s landscape has changed dramatically and nowhere is that more evident than in the Negev, a once-barren landscape that now has flourishing communities and an enhanced quality of life.

This trip will provide access to sites not found on most typical itineraries.

Some highlights include:

  • Ramon Air Force Base – interact with IDF soldiers and tour the JNF’s Wetlands Solution Project
  • Ayalon Institute – a secret bullet factory established during the War of Independence
  • Arava Institute – which houses the Methuselah Tree, the oldest germinated tree seed
  • Kibbutz Grofit – home to Red Mountain Therapeutic Riding Center – focusing on children with special needs
  • Optional treatments at Kibbutz Revivim’s thermal mineral spa
  • Briefings by top Israel newsmakers, experts and opinion leaders
  • JNF’s state of the art, secure indoor playground in Sderot
  • Timna Park – site of King Solomon’s mines
  • Wine tasting at Boker Valley vineyards
  • Optional day trip to Petra

Israel’s Great Frontier – A Mission to the Negev will begin on May 12 in Eilat and conclude in Tel Aviv on May 19, 2011.  An optional extension to Jerusalem will continue through May 22, 2011.

To learn more about this exciting opportunity,  please join us for an informational meeting with opening remarks from Professor Shaul Gabbay on Wednesday, August 18th at 7 p.m.  Call 303-573-7095 to RSVP.
