Re: [bamasorti] Rabbi Sunshine's Israel trip

At this moment I am sitting in the International Terminal at LAX awaiting our El Al flight to Israel. We went through security (which was very smooth and easy) and it was just a thrill to explain the purpose of our trip to the El Al agents. This anticipated journey, which has seemed surreal is finally becoming a reality. Twelve of us are traveling together -- Consul General to Israel for the Pacific Northwest Akiva Tor and eleven rabbis. In Israel, we will meet up with another 16 rabbis and Dan Pine, editor of the j. weekly. Over the course of the coming week, we will have the opportunity to hear from government officials, explore questions of religious pluralism in Israel, and to study Torah as an eclectic group of rabbis, each with unique perspective and experience, able to bring new perspective to one another as we explore the wisdom that has shaped the Jewish people for thousands of years.
Off now to El Al. More when we arrive in Jerusalem.__._,_.___Messages in this topic (1)Recent Activity:
