Below you will find most of our upcoming tiyulim including a special tiyul on the day after Yom Yerushalayim.

I hope to add an all-new tiyul to the Golan in the near future for those of you who already know the Golan from previous tiyulim.

Best wishes for a chag Pesach sameach.

What Else Did We Liberate on 28 B'Iyar in 1967?

Thursday, May 25th

In less than two months we will celebrate the 50th anniversary of the reunification of Yerushalayim עיר הקודש.

The day after Yom Yerushalayim, our tiyul will celebrate the liberation of the rest of the tribal areas of Yehuda.

We will renew our relationship with Kever Rachel, proceed to Me'arat HaMachpeila and end our day viewing the new movie which tells the story of the moving and heroic story of the four kibbutzim in Gush Etzion.

Our tour will deal with these sites while also focusing on the June 1967 battles which liberated them.

Rechavia

Friday, April 14th

We all know the neighborhood of Rechavia and some of us live there. But who knows how and when it started? Who lived there? When did the "Yekkes" arrive and why were there two "Yekkish" shuls there?? Where is the "giraffe" playground and what used to be there? What was really supposed to be on the site of the Gymnasium High School and why, in a neighborhood whose streets are (almost) all named for North African, Spanish and Provencal rabbis, why are there streets named for Menachem Usishkin, Chaim Arlozorov (and who were they?) and the Keren Kayemet?

All this and more as we walk through the shaded streets of what used to be Yerushalayim's most exclusive area.

Herodion

King Herod's "Piece de Resistance"

Tuesday, April 18th

15 minutes from Jerusalem stands the amazing mountain palace and fortress of Herodion, undoubtedly one of the most impressive sites in the country. Join us as we examine its history and learn its story: in the time of Herod, during the Great Rebellion and during the Bar Kochva Rebellion. See the shul, the mikvaot, the mausoleum, the crawl tunnels, the water cisterns, the bathhouse and much more.

Our tour will also include a discussion of Herod himself; his career, personality and "Jewish" status

Herodion is still an active archeological site and provides surprises and new discoveries whenever we visit.

Note: This tiyul involves a bit of climbing.

Khirbet Kayafa

The Most Important Biblical Site

Discovered this Century!

Sunday, April 16th

Khirbet Kayafa (or Qeiyafa as it is spelled by the archeologists), is arguably the most important Biblical archeological site discovered in the past few decades. Discovered in 2006 by Professor Yossi Garfinkle of Hebrew University, it has provided the scientific and archeological evidence which proves categorically (for those who question the accuracy of the Tanach) that there was a strong monarchy in the center of the country in the 10th century BCE, which we refer to as Malchut David (the Davidic dynasty).

We will return to this fascinating site and deal with the background, the archeological finds and their significance. Together with Professor Garfinkle's later finds, including the second ostracon (inscribed piece of pottery), we will attempt to reconstruct the original purpose of this hilltop in the Bet Shemesh region.

Har Herzl - Walking Tiyul

Who Are Our Heroes?

Tuesday, April 25th

As we approach Yom HaZikaron and Yom HaAtzmaut, we will learn about and revisit the resting sites of those who enable us to celebrate.

Thousands of people are buried at Har Herzl, including the famous. Yes, we will visit the famous. But we mainly visit Har Herzl for another reason. We will stand beside those who died so that we could realize the 2,000 year old dream of living in a Jewish State-- to hear stories of their sacrifice and heroism, and to feel the awe of meeting those who helped to create our modern nation and then defend it.

If you want to feel what it means to return to Israel after nearly two thousand years of exile, this is where you start.
