Please join our community and fellow chapters of the Jewish Learning Institute from around the globe on a luxurious and exciting learning tour of the Land of Israel, March 11–20, 2012.

This trip of a lifetime, in the unique Chabad spirit, will contain many special features you will not find on any other trip of its kind:

  • Journey of Learning: Explore Israel’s soul. The rich tradition of our history will come to life as we study the origin of our people, law and spirit at the land’s holy sites.
  • Israel Today from the Inside Out: Hear from Chief Rabbis, Dignitaries and Political Leaders and gain an insider’s view of modern-day Israel’s challenges and triumphs.

  • Five Star Accommodations: Concierge service from the moment you arrive, first-class accommodations at luxurious hotels, five-star gourmet meals and many amenities - all for an incredible value.
