Next Year in Jerusalem! (or Great Neck...)

Special to The Jewish Week

I’m still in awe... When I began my position at my congregation in the summer of 2009, one of the very first questions from my new congregants was, “Will you be planning a trip to Israel?”

Back to Israel in Troubled Times

Special to the Jewish Week

In just a few hours, I’ll be leaving for ten days in Israel, bringing with me fifty members of my congregation, as well as my wife and the Educational Director of our synagogue’s Religious School. I can no longer remember how many of these trips I’ve led during the past thirty years, and that is a very good thing indeed. One of the things I’m proudest of in my rabbinate is having introduced many members of my community to Israel for the first time. There is a special joy in that for me, and the feeling never grows old.

Promoting Israel in a Downturn

Special to the Jewish Week

It is somewhat out of the ordinary for The New York Times Travel section to devote two feature articles to a single city within a three-month span. It is even more surprising that the pieces did not focus on a tourism capital like London, Paris or Rome, but instead on a city in the Middle East. Yet, it has happened — to Tel Aviv.

Tel Aviv, Israel’s capital of culture and cosmopolitanism, has garnered much media attention of late.
