Escape to Israel
Starting March 17th, we’re bringing you back to Israel — via Zoom — in a way only we can! Included in this exciting series of virtual events are 10 Zoom sessions from March through June that will take you throughout Israel and present engagement opportunities with Israeli cultural icons and our Israeli partners to witness firsthand their transformative work. Unique to this year is a host of interactive experiences that are sure to awaken your senses and inspire a new appreciation for cooking, art, and culture.
