|AACI Study Vacation #144 - Exploring the Center (Dan Region) Filling up fast!!!
May 27-30, 2013
Guided by Ilan Levin
Jerusalem travelers will meet up with Study Vacation friends coming from the north, south and center of the country ready to take off for our “Dan Region” adventure.
We will begin our trip with a visit to the “Shafdan” regional sewage treatment center to learn about this innovative project - helping to irrigate our crops and preserve our precious fresh water resources.
After a lunch break we will continue our first day tour with a visit to the Rishon LeZion Museum and Synagogue
Following that visit, we move on to Kibbutz Galon - check in, rest up before dinner followed by our AACI social evening.
The next three days will be spent roaming the region, stopping in Holon where we will meet with the Samaritans and learn about their culture and traditions. Once again, we’ll have a lunch break and then drop into the Cartoon Museum and the Puppetry Museum. Fun, fun, fun……
On the agenda is a visit to Rehovot for a tour of the Tnuva Visitors Center, a stop at the Ayalon Institute, the Minkov Orchard Museum and the Weizmann Institute, including a visit to the home of the first President, and, time permitting, a walk around the Clore Garden of Science.
On our last day we will focus on Ramle where, after checking out of our rooms at Kibbutz Galon, we will visit the Karaim Center hear about their history, then take a drive through Ramle and stop at the “Arch Pool” (Brechat HaKeshatot) where you can hop into a rowboat and take a look around.
After a lunch stop, we will all head for home - probably tired, but better informed about this interesting and diverse region of Israel.
Cost of the trip NIS 1700 per person sharing a double room - NIS 2300 Single supplement.
Sign up now and reserve your place!!
Don't miss out on upcoming trips - Haifa October 7-10 with Mina glatzer and December 9-12 to Arad/Beer Sheva with Yochi Gordon.
Looking forward again..
