Rabbis Deborah Prinz and Mark Hurvitz, spiritual leaders of Temple Adat Shalom of Poway and Congregation Etz Chaim of Ramona, invite you to join them on a unique Intergenerational Tour of Israel. The trip offers an "on-site" fun opportunity for your family to grow in understanding and appreciation of the excitement of Israel. Both Rabbi Prinz and Rabbi Hurvitz have extensive experience and knowledge of Israel, having lived there and led previous tours.
Walter Zanger, an ordained Reform Rabbi and a licensed Israeli Master Guide, will guide our trip. Rabbi Zanger's passionate guiding springs from his years of learning about the land, people and history of Israel as well as his keen and perceptive insights into Judaism.
