Next Year in Israel (2013): Passover in the Desert
Join us for an Adventure Rabbi Passover Trip to Israel March 18-27, 2013. What a unique way to celebrate Passover! What a unique way to visit Israel!
We've put together an amazing itinerary for a 10-day desert adventure trip, March 18-27, 2013 culminating with a Passover seder in a remote desert eco-lodge.
We will hike the spectacular mountains and canyons of the Negev and explore the mysterious dunes of the Wilderness of Zin by mountain bike (or by foot if you prefer.) On Shabbat we will camp in the middle of Mactesh Ramon, a huge crater, beneath the almost full moon. Other nights we will enjoy the luxury of 4-star hotels and an eco-lodge.
We will dine in Bedouin tents, enjoy Israel's great wines and chocolates and no doubt stay up late into the night engaging in fascinating conversation.
The region is visually similar to the Utah desert with its red rock and blue sky, and spiritually powerful because this is the land through which our ancestors traveled as they journeyed from Egypt to the Promised Land.
This will not be your typical Israel trip. We will not be doing the tourist stops in Jerusalem or Eilat, although there will be opportunities for you to add that on before or after our wilderness adventure. Rather, this will be a unique opportunity to go deep into the wilderness of Israel, Adventure Rabbi style, to combine Judaism and nature and thereby discover our connection with this sacred land and each other. (Note:Our tour provider is offering an optional tour extension to visit the major sites.)
Jeff will be bringing his camera, so you'll be sure to go home with spectacular photos from the trip.
The cost of the trip is $2,999 per person (+$125 for non-members), which includes everything except your airfare and tips. The trip is designed for adults who are in good physical condition and love to hike! Details of the itinerary are at http://adventurerabbi.org/congregation/passover-seder-in-Israel-2013.htm
