Typically spending 7-10 days in Israel, our Community Missions explore the length & breadth of the country from the Negev Desert in the South, to the Golan & Galilee in the North. We visit all the main sites & cities in Israel, as well as enjoying experiences that are “off-the-beaten track”, meeting with local Israelis and sampling the culture, food & wine. Our trips are family-friendly & designed to for both first-timers & return visitors.
