AACI Continuing Education
"Learning doesn’t stop when one gets old. One gets old when one stops learning”.
“Learning doesn’t stop when one gets older. One gets old when one stops learning”. It was on that premise that AACI Continuing Education was  initiated in 1986 and continues today.
Participants in the 4 day ,3 night Study Vacations range in age from 50’s through 90’s,live in all regions of Israel and include tourists. We include vatikim and new olim. We all share a love of Israel and a desire to learn about this amazing country. Since 1986, the tours have taken the participants to the north, south, east ,west and centre of the country. We have met and learned about all citizens- Jews, Arab Christians, Arab Moslems, Bedouins, Druze and Circassians. We have visited cities, nature reserves, kibbutzim, moshavim, industrial parks, factories, museums, universities, schools and organizations that are involved in amazing programs of “chesed”. Wine and chocolate tasting are often on the itinerary. We have gone on over 150 study vacations- each one a unique experience.
Our tours are open to all English speaking members of AACI. Information is available in the e newsletter and The Voice.

Study Vacation #153 January 11 – 14, 2016 Guided by Jacky Sivak - Wait List
As we wend our way toward Be’er Sheva and throughout our venture in this area, we will visit, tour, learn about the many exciting projects, old, renovated and new that are taking place, and meet the people that make it happen.
Some of the sites we will visit are:  Mitzpe Revivim, one of the earliest settlements in the Negev; Neot Hovav Visitors Center to hear about industry and environment in the Negev; the Teva Pharmaceutical Visitors Center.   We will stop in at the Cochin Heritage Center in Moshav Nevatim; take a tour of Beer Avraham, and a ‘virtual’ train ride at the Turkish Train Station.
But it doesn’t end there – Also on the agenda is a tour of  the Carasso Science Park at the edge of the Old City,  The Australian Soldiers Park – dedicated to the Australian Light  Horse Regiments who captured Be’er Sheva in World War I, Sami Shamoon College of Engineering to get a ‘bird’s eye view’ of Engineering in the Future; Stop at the Monument to the Negev Brigade, and Tel Be’er Sheva.
We will visit Hura, a Bedouin village and get some insight into their social and economic initiatives, and also stop at Wadi Attir to learn about “new Israeli technology – old Bedouin ways”.
