Teen Trip to Israel–Winter 2020

At Central Synagogue

Late December 2020–early January 2021*

More than your typical Israel tour—uncover the unseen side of Israel side-by-side with Central clergy, staff, and other CenSyn Teens.

This first-ever Central teen trip to Israel, led by Rabbi Dan Ross, Rabbi Rebecca Rosenthal, Merissa Hochberg, and Amanda Phillips, will be a highlight of your teen’s Jewish education.

Together, we will see more than the typical sites of Israel. Of course we will go to Jerusalem, visit the Western Wall, Yad Vashem, Tel Aviv and see the Negev Desert, among many other fascinating points of interest.

We will also meet with Ethiopian Jews, a Jewish-Arab-Christian youth group, and Palestinian teens, and learn what it means to be LGBTQ in Israel. We will ride a camel in the Negev Desert, and spend the night in a sukkah. And we will go beyond the Green Line to meet with participants of a program bringing West Bank Palestinians and their Jewish neighbors together.
