Israel in the Wake of October 7

23 – 27 June 2024 based in Tel Aviv

Coming to Israel today is a special act of solidarity and of Jewish peoplehood. Israel has never faced more challenging times. This trip will provide opportunities for encounter, providing an understanding of where the people of Israel stand – in their pain, in their healing, and in their hope. The trip will enable participants to bear witness to the atrocities of October 7, to learn about the work of Israel’s National Institutions in response to October 7 and to gain an appreciation of the impact of October 7 on Israeli society.
