A Little Bit of Heaven, Hardship, and Hope: Seeing Israel and Palestine with New Eyes

A Trip for adults and teens (age 13 and above).

On this trip, we will delve into the complexity of life behind the headlines, to learn more about the fears, dreams, and hopes of Israeli Jews, Israeli Arabs, and Palestinians. Whether you have visited Israel before or this is your first time, you will discover this land in new ways. Our MEJDI guides will offer multiple narratives of the history and the present realities here, and we will meet courageous and imaginative leaders who are working every day for the future peace between these peoples. Join Temple Hillel B’nai Torah and Rabbi Barbara Penzner for the chance of a lifetime, to learn together and connect with people, art, music, food, and warm hospitality in Israel and the West Bank.

We welcome Jewish and non-Jewish family members. Travelers do not need to be members of HBT, but our members are given preference if we reach our limit of 35 participants.
