Join us on a Mission to Israel

This mission which will take place from February 4 – February 9, is a uniquely powerful opportunity to witness the physical and emotional aftermath of 10/7, to bring comfort and love to Israelis who were directly impacted by this massacre and to contribute to the rebuilding by volunteering. This mission is not for everyone. It will be fast paced and intense physically and emotionally. It is also an opportunity unlike any other to make a difference.

Please be in touch with Rabbi Ben-Gideon if you have any questions:
