Israel Solidarity Mission 2024


join us for the temple b'nai abraham
Israel Solidarity Mission, Feb. 26-March 1

We have an opportunity this coming February 2024 to engage in the particularly sacred work of supporting our extended Jewish family in Israel. The Temple is sending a solidarity mission to Israel for a packed journey of witnessing, learning, and working to help Israelis on the ground and also advocate for Israelis back here in the United States upon our return. I’ll be leading the trip along with our phenomenal travel partners in Israel.

The solidarity trip will take place over four days and three nights, from February 26 to 29, with the delegation staying overnight in Jerusalem. Please find the tentative itinerary attached. Given changes on the ground every day, this itinerary may change, and there are likely more trip components to be added. 

The trip will include:

Visiting the Gaza region, and specifically sites attacked on October 7

Meeting with Israelis directly impacted by October 7

Volunteering (likely in agricultural fields, preparing food for soldiers, and more)

Meeting with a Knesset Member

Praying at the Kotel for the welfare of the State of Israel and the IDF
