Adventure Judaism, Bonai Shalom, Boulder JCC, and Congregation Har HaShem are partnering in 2020 on a community-wide trip to Israel, May 31-June 11. Right now, 20 participants have registered for the upcoming trip that will showcase some of the major highlights of the country from north to south. Da’at Educational Expeditions is the tour provider and the tour educator will be Mark Kedem. Kedem grew up in Johannesburg, South Africa and now lives in Kokhav Ya’ir Tzur Yigal in Central Israel. Mark has worked for the Education Department of the Jewish Agency in various positions, planning and implementing programs in Israel for youth and students. Mark is passionate about everything involving food and cooking, as well as cycling, nature, and hiking.
The itinerary for the trip includes time in Tel Aviv, Jaffa, Jerusalem, Tzfat, Caesarea, and the Boulder’s Sister City region Ramat HaNegev. Highlights include tours of the markets of Jerusalem and Tel Aviv, a visit to the state of the art wastewater treatment plant outside of Tel Aviv, a biodynamic farm near the Kinneret, and an archaeological dig at the Beit Guvrin Caves.
There is still space available on the trip and registration remains open until March. If you would like to learn more about the trip itinerary and extension possibilities to Petra, please join us for an upcoming information session at the Boulder JCC.
