Each activity will cost a reduced rate of $18, or an all-inclusive rate of $180.

The Israel Experience: Don’t Leave Home to Visit, hosted by the Israel Center at the Jewish Community Center of Greater Ann Arbor, will take participants on the tour of a lifetime without ever having to leave the comfort of home from May 9-16.

The “trip” to Israel is shaping up to be a mosaic of historical and modern, including a “walking” tour of Jerusalem, a deep dive into the street art of Tel Aviv and a cooking workshop with an Arab Israeli chef.

A full day of programs with Ann Arbor’s sister community, Moshav Nahalal, is also in the works, including a cheesemaking workshop highlighting the moshav’s dairy farm and a dance class for kids and adults of all ages.

Take a run “through” Nahalal or try kabbalistic meditation “in” Tzfat. Supplies will be provided for pick up in Ann Arbor for hands-on workshops.

Journeys International is the tour organizer. Each activity will cost a reduced rate of $18, or an all-inclusive rate of $180, thanks to the sponsorship of the D. Dan and Betty Kahn Foundation. Information and registration are at jccannarbor.org or register at (734) 971-0990.
