We begin our trip on Tu B’Shvat, the “New Year” for trees. This is the time when the sap of the new growth has begun flowing and the dormant tree is waking from its winter slumber. Newness and re-growth are the lessons of the day.
Our trip ends with commemorating the Yahrtzeit of Rabbi Yisrael Salanter, who defined Mussar as the Torah’s antidote to timtum ha’lev, the closed heart that is no longer sensitive and supple. Mussar re-awakens us to truths we know well but have “forgotten” because they have become habitual to us. Mussar helps us “to renew our days as of old” (Megillat Eicha 5:21), to refresh our sensibilities, to enliven our awareness of what we already have.
Between these two celebratory days, we will study, travel, learn, connect, explore and enjoy as we revive and revitalize our inner lives, to bring home a refreshed spirit and a reawakened heart.
We are pleased to present to you the itinerary and tour package for your Israel trip. These have been carefully crafted to provide an experience that is engaging, fun, uplifting, informative and inspirational for the participants.
