We have decided to postpone the trip to Israel that we had originally planned to take place this coming spring. Doing so makes it far more likely that we will have the optimal number of participants for the trip. In particular, Rabbi Steve has secured the interest of another Reconstructionist congregation, Beth Evergreen (CBE) in Denver, to join with us for the trip. Rabbi Steve has already met with five members of this congregation who plan to join us for our Israel tour, and there is the exciting prospect that CBE’s Rabbi Jamie Arnold will join us as well. Most important, we hope the postponement will allow some of you who were interested in the spring 2018 trip, but for different reasons couldn’t join us, to participate in the planning for a trip next winter or later next year.
Second, we are excited to welcome Danny Ehrlich of Keshet Educational Tours to Salt Lake City this week. He is a dynamic speaker, talented educator, and wonderful tour leader. Whether or not you were planning on joining us for the planned spring 2018 trip, we encourage you to come enjoy his exciting presentation, engage, and imagine. Please join us at 7 p.m. this coming Thursday, November 16th, at Kol Ami (exact room to be determined).
