The Israel Encounter interfaith trip to Israel
Sponsor The Jewish Encounter
Type of Event Trip
Description The Israel Encounter is now accepting applications for their 2010 Atlanta-based interfaith couples trip to Israel! This amazing experience, which is designed specifically for interfaith couples (married or engaged) who live in Atlanta will run from April 23 - May 3, 2010, and will include guided tours and sight-seeing, fun, and learning about many aspects of Israel and Jewish identity. The Marcus Foundation has authorized us to offer the Israel Encounter trip for the unbelievable price of $2,500 per couple! This includes round-trip airfare (Delta group flight from Atlanta to Tel Aviv and back), all guided tours; hotel accommodations; two meals per day; and transportation while in Israel. They will be using the same excellent guide as last year. The purpose of the trip is to encourage and motivate interfaith couples to raise their children Jewishly. There is no expectation (nor pressure) for the non-Jewish partner/spouse to convert to Judaism. Go to their website at for more information, to see pictures from last year's trip, and to complete an application. Mitch Cohen and Steve Chervin will be leading the trip, which is being limited to the first 16 qualified couples who apply. The application deadline is December 31, 2009, but if you are interested, don't wait because they expect to fill all of their slots quickly
