Come play in mud and salt from the Dead Sea, place a wish in the Western Wall, dance to Israeli music, make Israeli salad from scratch, watch short films in Hebrew, and much, much more! Thanks to the generous support of a Jewish Hospital HealthCare Services Community Excellence Grant, our Jewish community’s children (ages two through grade eight) and their families can do all that at The Temple’s “Taste of Israel Day” on Sunday, May 1, 9:30 a.m.-12:45 p.m.
The adventure begins with a morning “flight” from Louisville to Israel and destinations including Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, the Negev, the Dead Sea, Masada, Haifa, Safed and the North. Tour guides will be on-hand at the various cities and well-known historical sites. A learning portion with center-based activities will be available at each locale including a fun, hands-on activity segment. Students in third grade and above will also watch two short movies produced by a famous Israeli film school.
Lunch – kosher hot dogs, falafel and Israeli salad – will be served at noon and the formal program will end by 12:45 p.m. Those who wish to stay after lunch can see the family film, The Little Traitor, about Israel Independence Day.
This program is open to children from the entire Jewish community. All Temple Religious School students should arrive on time and proceed to their classrooms. Visitors are asked to be at The Temple by 9:20 a.m. and enter through the preschool (door facing U.S. Hwy 42), where they will be directed to the appropriate classrooms.
