My sabbatical in Israel begins!

Israeli flag mosaicI am so grateful to all of you, to the lay leadership of GJC, and to our wonderful staff for making it possible for me and my family to take a sabbatical in Israel in this New Year.  I am leaving on Sunday for Haifa and will be back in July.  I will miss you all and look forward to hearing about everything that will happen this year in my absence.  While I am gone, there are a number of ways for you to keep in touch with me and to keep updated about our adventures in Israel:


  • Blogs:  Cheryl, Zeke, and I are each writing separate blogs about our experiences.  Please follow us!  Here are the links:
  • Facebook & Twitter:
    • You can access my Facebook page (and "Friend" me!) here
    • Follow me on Twitter:  @rabbiadamzeff
  • Skype:  There will be a number of opportunities to Skype with me while I am Israel and to hear about what I and my family are doing firsthand.  The first will be on Sunday, October 19, at 10:00 AM at GJC; check the GJC calendar for other dates.  I look forward to "seeing" you then.

Israel trip:  A group of 18 GJC members is already signed up for the GJC Israel trip in December, which I will lead.  It's not too late for you to join us!  For more information, click here.
