Solidarity Mission to Israel led by Rabbi Paul Kipnes and Rabbi Lana Zilberman Soloway
June 17-20

Continuing the Journey – Optional Extension Post-trip
June 21-24

Registration Ends MAY 5, 2024!

Coming to Israel today is a special act of solidarity and of Jewish peoplehood. Israel has never faced more challenging times. We hope that this solidarity mission is about encountering and understanding where the people of Israel stand – in our hurt, in our healing, and in our hope. The mission is about bringing comfort and being comforted. It is an act of empathy and a confirmation of shared memory and destiny. Above all, the solidarity mission is about what each one of us chooses to do to make a difference when we come back to our community.
