Israel and Travel

Civil Rights Journey in Memphis, TNWe encourage our community to explore the ancient sites described in the Torah, to engage with people who represent the diversity and dynamism of the modern-day country, and to share their experiences. Every few years, Temple Beth Am organizes a trip to Israel or other location relevant to Jews - such as the 2018 Civil Rights Journey to Atlanta, Montgomery, Selma, Birmingham, Memphis, and Graceland - for members with one of our rabbis. We also offer year-round opportunities to connect with other members and special guests on the topic of Israel.

Temple Beth Am's Multi-Generational Trip to Israel

We are excited to share with you the next opportunity to travel to Israel with Rabbi Ruth A. Zlotnick and Director of Community Engagement Alexis Kort for a multi-generational trip on February 15-26, 2020. This 10-day trip is geared for both families and individuals to experience the history, culture, and dynamic relationships of Israel.  We will share Shabbat with Reform Israeli Jews in Jerusalem, learn more about current peace and co-existence projects, stay on a kibbutz, experience the hustle and bustle of Tel Aviv and Kabbalistic magic of Tzfat, and so much more. Our itinerary is being developed to have options for both families and individuals throughout our week and half together. 

The cost of the trip is @ $2,800 per-person for 9 days of travel and 10-night accommodations in Israel. Flights are not included in the trip cost and there is a $1,000 single supplement if you are traveling solo. 

Registration opens February 15! $100 discount per-person if you register by April 1.
