Registration is officially open for Boulder’s Community-Wide Trip to Israel.
Between now and October 10, participants will receive early bird pricing.
The 12-day trip across Israel is in partnership with the Boulder JCC, Adventure Judaism, Congregation Bonai Shalom, and Congregation Har HaShem. Travelling through diverse cities and landscapes, the trip will provide meaningful experiences and educational content for adults and families. Organized to accommodate two different tracks, one for adults and one for families, this accessible and inclusive journey is positioned to be a great community-creating trip, with deeply impactful experiences for the individual and the group as a whole.
Taking off on May 31, 2020, the group will travel to Tel Aviv, Jaffa, Ramat HaNegev, Jerusalem, the Sea of Galilee, Tsfat, and Caesarea. Some of Israel’s most historic and beautiful sites, participants will experience the bustling city of Tel Aviv and Shabbat in Jerusalem. In between, the group will learn about Boulder’s sister city, Ramat HaNegev, shop at a local shuk or market, and visit an archaeological site. Additional opportunities are available for those celebrating lifecycle events, such as a bar or bat mitzvah, vow renewal, wedding, or choosing a Hebrew name.
