Dear friends,

We would like to share with you the basic itinerary and costs of the Israel Tour 2019.
Please take into account that this travel is not simply a touristic trip but an educational mission,  an exploration of the Land of Israel and its many facets, religions, cultures, politics and social strata.
The main points of attraction have been carefully selected, accompanied by specialized guides in each region, and lectures by experts.
Meetings are also planned with personalities of the first level, which will allow us to know the Holy Land a little more in depth, off the beaten track.  These types of meetings and lectures would never be included in any touristic holiday.
We have chosen and are dealing with a top-notch well-established travel agency with offices in Jerusalem that comes highly recommended.
We have tried to reduce costs, maintaining the best quality possible, taking into account the high costs in the country.
This will be absolutely fascinating! I enclose the program, and I am at your disposal for any question about it.

Please consider joining this voyage of a lifetime

Blessings,

Rabbi Daniel
