Rabbi Matthew D. Gewirtz and 70 members of the Congregation B'nai Jeshurun family spent ten days in Israel at the end of August. The group spent time in Tel Aviv, Jerusalem and points beyond.

A highlight of the trip was the visit to Masada. During the morning service held on top of the fabled site, the Torah was read, including a B'nai Mitzvah service.

Pictured are members of the group as they stopped to celebrate their entrance into Jerusalem.
