I 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:
- 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.
