M’kor Shalom and Israel…perfect together! This has been our motto for over two decades of Israel travel. We have provided our congregants with over 30 opportunities to experience our Jewish homeland with their M’kor Shalom family. Whether it is a summer trip with families of all ages, an adult trip in the coolness of autumn or the annual Confirmation class trip at Passover, our congregants travel to Israel with clergy, professional staff and lay leadership, building lifelong friendships and memories.
We create the perfect trip for each group by beginning with a blank slate and filling in the dates and the sites that meet our goals. We are sure to include contact with organizations affiliated with the Reform movement, including worship at progressive congregations in both Jerusalem and Tel Aviv, as well as visits to Reform kibbutzim. We have staggered itineraries by going north one year and south the next, so that our frequent flyers – and there are many – can have a completely new experience.
In addition to Israel, we have journeyed to Turkey to learn about Jewish life in Izmir and Istanbul. Who knows what other travel destinations are in our future? Time will tell!
