It was truly the trip of a lifetime! This past December, more than 80 WBT members journeyed to Israel with Rabbi Eshel for our annual B’nei Mitzvah Trip. We explored the ancient city of Jaffa, experienced Tel Aviv culture and nightlife, climbed Masada, ate lunch in a Druze village, spelunked through 2,000-year-old caves, descended underground at a secret ammunition factory, rode donkeys and camels, took a dip in the Dead Sea, ventured through the alleys of the Old City, tasted our way through the Machane Yehuda market in Jerusalem, and much, much more! Our incredible 10-day adventure culminated with a group B’nei Mitzvah ceremony and celebration for 17 WBT teens overlooking the Old City at night. It was a night to remember! A big thank-you to the Goldhirsh-Yellin Foundation for its generous donation toward this trip, and for supporting our B’nei Mitzvah students in Israel! Upcoming trips are December 21 - December 30, 2020 with Rabbi David Eshel and June 18 - June 27, 2021 with Rabbi Joel Nickerson. For more information, please contact Lisa Alpern at lalpern@wbtla.org.
