Trip to Israel Info and Havdallah/Dessert Session with Rabbi Steve (Journey to the Soul of Israel)

May 27, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

In the evening, there will be a dessert gathering and info session at about 7:00 pm (location home of Jacqueline and Alan Fogel) to learn more about the proposed trip to Israel that Rabbi Steve and Keshet Tours will be leading in late April-early May 2018.

Even if you aren’t sure you are interested in going, feel free to join us for a pre-Shavuot dessert gathering and info session on our trip to Israel in 2018. We welcome family, friends, and other non-members to come and check it out too. Please RSVP to us via the Contact Form so we know how many to expect.

Journey to the Soul of Israel
Whether or not you can imagine joining us next spring (but especially if you can), join us for a lively presentation and discussion.  Engaging with Israel on the ground changes the soul of most who visit, especially Jews.  Let’s begin to imagine this journey together!  Rabbi Steve will bring slides and stories from some of his time in Israel, share how it affected him, and open to questions and suggestions.  
Note: This trip will not be a “Disneyland” trip to Israel.  We will begin and focus on building strong positive personal connections with the land, people, history and art there. We will experience some of the diversity of the people, religion and culture. We will also meet people from different sides of the multiple conflicts there and leave with a stronger understanding of the complexities.
The CBY trip will be open first to CBY members and their friends.  If needed we will also expand to other like minded congregations in the region. 
Havdallah and dessert will also be part of our evening.
Please bring a healthy and/or dairy (for Shavuot!) dessert to share.
