Israel Solidarity Mission II, July 2024

join us for the second
temple b'nai abraham Israel
Solidarity Mission, July 14-19, 2024

We have an opportunity this July to engage in the particularly sacred work of supporting our extended Jewish family in Israel.  After our February group came back profoundly moved by what they did and what they saw, others expressed an interest in going as well.

The Temple is sending its second solidarity mission to Israel for a packed journey of witnessing, learning, and working to help Israelis on the ground and advocate for Israelis back here in the United States. I’ll be leading the trip along with our phenomenal travel partners in Israel.

The solidarity trip will take place July 14-19, with the delegation staying overnight in Jerusalem; an option to extend to July 21 is available.  Please find the tentative itinerary attached. Please know that we plan on leaving in the late evening of July 14 so that those visiting children at camp should still be able to make the flight. 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-adjacent 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)

Paying respects at the Nova Music Festival site

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