Waxman High School and Youth House Trip to Israel 2017
UPDATE FROM THE WAXMAN YOUTH'S TRIP TO ISRAEL
After a rather comfortable but long flight (the food was decent too) we landed at Ben Gurion Airport all smiles. After passport control we went out to meet our excellent Israeli staff under the auspices of Ramah Israel.
Straight from the airport we went to the Israel Children's Museum in Holon. The group was split in half for one of two interactive experiences to help us understand a little of what it means to live as a blind person or a deaf person. After some down time at the museum cafe we drove to our hotel which is on a kibbutz on the water. We took a beautiful dusk walk to a cliff side overlook. We showered and enjoyed a warm meal. We then spent time bonding as a complete group. Click here to view some of the beautiful pictures being taken everyday.
Israel Needs Your Support
As you know, Israel has been battling severe fires for the past several days. Temple Israel is joining with Great Neck Synagogue, Temple Beth El of Great Neck and Young Israel of Great Neck in a community-wide emergency campaign to provide state of the art fire fighting equipment through the Jewish National Fund (JNF).
We hope you will join our community's united effort to bring relief to Israel during this crisis. You can donate directly through the following link http://support.jnf.org/goto/gnsfire.
To make a donation online to the "Israel Solidarity Fund", please click here and enter "JNF Fire-Fighting Campaign" in the "How would you like your name to be listed?" field, or if you prefer to send a check, please make it payable to the "Temple Israel of Great Neck" (note: "JNF Fire-Fighting Campaign" in the memo line on the check) and mail it to Temple Israel of Great Neck, 108 Old Mill Road, Great Neck, NY 11023.
Thank you for whatever help you can provide to Israel during this very difficult time.
