Hanukkah Trips

For the first time ever, we are giving participants the option to participate in the Tzofim's annual Hanukkah trip, in Southern Israel. The group of Tzabar Olami participants will be an organic group that will join one of the Israeli Hanhagot and will travel with them throughout the Negev from December 23-25. At the end of the trip, participants will spend a night at home and will join the conference the following day.

Cost per participant: 450 shekel, including food.

See you in Israel,

Tzabar Olami Staff
