Or Chadash Community Trip to Israel
March 5-12, 2014 • Hosted by Rabbi Thomas & Marcia Louchheim
At Or Chadash we have taught you about God, Torah and Israel. God represents what we believe. Torah represents what we learn and what we teach. And then there is Israel. This trip you will be taking with us to Israel will change your life. More than what you believe and what you learn, a trip to Israel anchors your life.
The places we explore together, the people we meet, and the foods we taste will connect you to our Jewish history, our culture, and to your own spirituality. Israel is a place that is both complex and compelling; but at the end of the trip, we guarantee that what you experience will change you and remind you of what life is all about. We look forward to being your travelling companions in March 2014.
B’virkat Shalom – With Blessings of Peace,
Rabbi Thomas and Marcia Louchheim
