West Hartford, Conn. (April 21, 2022) — In celebration of Israel’s 75th birthday, the Jewish Federations of Greater Hartford and Greater New Haven are presenting a "Choose Your Own Adventure" community trip to Israel from March 9 – 16, 2023. At least 200 local community members are expected to participate in this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, which offers five flexible tracks geared toward different topics and levels of Israel experience.
“This trip is going to be exciting on so many different levels,” said Juanita Moss of West Hartford, who is co-chairing the trip along with her husband, Yitz (Isaac), and Lauren and David Hass of Orange.
“I have spent a lot of time in Israel, but I am very excited for this trip. It will be a different and unique
experience,” added Yitz Moss. “With five tracks to choose from, you can customize every day of your trip and someone else will make the all the arrangements for you – an opportunity that is not available very often.”
The tracks include an introductory itinerary for first-time visitors to the Jewish homeland, plus special itineraries focusing on geopolitics of the Middle East, arts and culture, food and wine, and technology and innovation. Travelers are free to switch tracks from one day to the next – and every itinerary provides an insider’s view of Israel with VIP access to sites and experts. All participants will enjoy kosher meals and deluxe accommodations at some of Israel’s finest hotels.
“This trip will be a top-notch, five-star experience,” said Lauren Hass. “We're going to stay in the best hotels, we're going to go to the best restaurants, and we're going to have access to the most incredible people.”
Registration for the trip is now open, and an early bird discount is available for Greater Hartford and New Haven families through June 1. All the details are available on the trip’s official website at https://israel-adventure-2023.eventmagix.com/. Interested community members are also invited to attend a Zoom info session on Monday, May 16 at 7 p.m. To register for the info session, visit https://bit.ly/IsraelTripInfo516.
“We’ve been to Israel twice, and you learn something new every time,” noted David Hass. “We're hoping you'll join us in 2023 and experience all that Israel has to offer."
