Israel is a country of many contradictions. It is a land thousands of years old but a country 75 years young. It mixes ancient cities with ever-growing skyscrapers. Tourists and tattooed hipsters bump shoulders with devout adherents of the three major monotheistic religions as well as those of other faiths and none. It is a land of conflict and a land of peace, the sea and the desert, flat coastal plains and steep mountain tops, sun and snow. For countless people and for thousands of years, it is the center of the universe.

Join Federation's Vice President of Community and Government Relations, Daniel Pearlman, on an educational tour of Israel through photos, videos, and stories of the land, the people, the history, and more. Then, you will have a chance to visit Israel using Virtual Reality (VR) glasses, under the guidance of Project Manager and Tech Coordinator, Tim Hagen, providing a realistic 3D touring experience.

Limited Space Available. RSVP required to form.jotform.com/jewishtoledo/JCRC-events or Sherry Majewski at 419-724-0351 or sherry@jewishtoledo.org
