 Day Tiyul to Ashkelon National Park, Ashdod and Bnei Darom

We will explore the city of Ashdod – the town which was established by the Philistines in biblical times and became one of the largest and the most beautiful cities in Israel.  We will visit the parks and the squares, the observation points and the bridge, where the Egyptian army stopped during the Independence War – which saved Tel Aviv.
We will then visit the Ashkelon National Park – an amazing mixture of ruins, lush vegetation and great views. Ashkelon was a strategic stronghold along the ancient coastal plain route, which was at the peak of its power during the Roman period. Some of the jewels of antiquity are to found within the park: the oldest known arch from Abraham's times, a magnificent basilica from the Roman period, amazing views of the coastal plane, and much more…
We will conclude our tour in the visitor's center in Bnei Darom – the best place to learn, taste and purchase virgin olive oil.
Please bring a picnic lunch.
(Registration deadline date: Tuesday, 17th March).

"A Jewish Narrative"
Thursdays, 11:00 - 12:00
Feldenkrais For All
Tuesdays, March, 3, 10, 17 & 24, 16:00-17:00
We spend long hours sitting: working at the computer, driving/riding a car, watching TV - all these activities keep us in a frozen and passive position and we end up with back and neck pain, eye strain, shallow breath and overall stiffness and fatigue.
This course will help you use your body in such a way that sitting becomes more dynamic and you can relieve muscle tension in your back, neck and shoulders. This will make the activities that you are engaged in more productive, and will improve your overall posture. 
The Feldenkrais Method was developed in the 50s by the Israeli physicist and Judo master Dr. Moshe Feldenkrais. It is a learning system for improving moving and functioning through self awareness.
Members: NIS 140.  Non-members: NIS 180
