Israel Unplugged! Is a Different Experience

So you’ve been to Israel before. You’ve climbed Masada. You’ve been to the Western Wall. You’ve floated in the Dead Sea. You loved it but would like a different experience.

Isn’t there some way you can go to experience Israel differently? The way Israelis experience it?

Yes! Israel Unplugged! has an itinerary that will let you hike, bike and rappel through Israel, stopping along the way to savor the wine and enjoy the finest food the country has to offer.

From April 12-23, 2015, be part of this Louisville group, led by Jon and Laura Klein, and get to know a different side of Israel.

Start exploring the culinary gems of Tel Aviv and visit the city’s most bohemian, upbeat neighborhood in a “Graffiti Tour of Tel Aviv” with leading local Israeli artists and street art experts.

Be part of the Israel Boot Camp experience, where you’ll learn the Israeli style self defense, Krav Maga and more.

Stops at less frequently visited places like the Yitzhak Rabin Center, the Ghetto Fighters House and the Old City Roof Top Walk in Jerusalem will let you see Israel from a new perspective, and talks with experts on the Druze; Col. Kobi Marom a brigade commander during the war with Lebanon, and Col. Danny Tirza, who planned Israel’s security fence will give you a deeper understanding of the country.

In the Western Galilee, there will be opportunities for yoga on the beach and at a kibbutz, a spa stop, rappelling at the Ramon Crater and plenty of opportunities to shop.
This trip is offered by the Jewish Community Center. Jon and Laura Klein are chairs of Louisville’s Partnership 2Gether program.

For more information, come to an informational session on Monday, November 3, at 6:45 p.m. at Shiraz in Holiday Manor. To reserve your place, contact JCC Senior Vice President and COO Sara Wagner, 238-2779 or
