Ner Shalom Israel Tour

Ner Shalom Israel Tour

**This tour has reached capacity. If you would like to join the waitlist for the tour, please email [email protected] with the names and number of travelers interested.**

Join Reb Irwin Keller, along with members and friends of Congregation Ner Shalom in Israel. The tour will have a strong emphasis on historical and holy site-seeing, spiritual experiences, art, music, food and FUN. We will also do some serious learning about the full social, religious and political spectrum that makes Israel the fascinating and complex place that it is. You will have the opportunity to make authentic connections with the diverse peoples that call Israel and Palestine home. Even if you have been to Israel before, it is a different and wonderful experience to travel with fellow congregants where you can create bonds that last a lifetime.

Included in the experience are several pre-trip learning sessions to acquaint us in advance with the land and the history of Israel…and also give you a chance to connect with your fellow travelers before the tour.

Check out the detailed tour itinerary (also located at the bottom of this page).

Check out a four minute TED talk by the founder of MEJDI in which he outlines the history and philosophy behind the company.
