For eight days, we will explore the roots and stories of the Jewish people, the historical and modern state of Israel, and meet with a diverse group of Israelis. We will travel from the barren desert to the Mediterranean Sea to the lush north. We will see villages, kibbutzim, the holy centers of Jerusalem and Safed, and super-modern Tel Aviv. There will be time every day devoted to reflection, discussion, and writing, often facilitated by authors. See the itinerary for more details.
