Time to Visit Israel, come and listen just how to get there.

Ethan on EIE
Sunday April 20th, 10:30 am (with free lox and bagel brunch) at Lakeside Congregation, come and here about many different ways to visit Israel.  We have 5 speakers and there is a trip for everyone.  First up is Ethan Ehrlich who will speak about his time on EIE, Eisendrath International Exchange.  Ethan spent 4 months of his junior year in High School on Kibbutz Tzuba not just studying his High School classes but experiencing all of Israel.  Then Gina Goldman, Lakeside Confirmation graduate, will share with us about her experiences on Taglit Birthright.

We also have experiences for families; Marc Cairo will share with us his experience on the Lakeside Congregation trip last year when his daughter became a Bat Mitzvah.  Dan Blaustein also on the Lakeside Trip.  We are going as a congregation again next year, March 2015 so come and hear a preview of what is in store for you.

Our next speaker is from Skilled Volunteers for Israel.Skilled Volunteers for Israel matches experienced professionals with meaningful skilled volunteer opportunities in Israel.  They link the expertise of North American & British Jews with the critical needs of Israel through limited-term volunteer engagements.  Volunteer to meet a need that’s been identified by our partners or we will design an opportunity for you based on your skills and interests.  Chuck Rosenberg will let us know all about this fascinating new organization.

We will also hear from Daniel Kaplan who will be sharing how to visit Israel.  

I am looking forward to Sunday morning and I encourage you to come and see just how to get to Israel.  Chag Samaech!
