Beckers to lead third community trip to Israel

Rabbi Israel and Esther Becker of Southwest Torah Institute and Congregation Chofetz Chayim will host a “Love of the Land” orientation meeting Wednesday, Sept. 30 at 7 p.m. to introduce their third Tucson Jewish community Israel trip, which is slated for May 22 through June 5, 2016.

Refreshments will be served in the synagogue’s sukkah.

“Hosting the trip orientation meeting in the sukkah is most appropriate because one is totally enveloped in the sukkah’s atmosphere. Likewise, on our trip to Israel you will feel that something extraordinary is happening all around you,” said the rabbi.

The trip orientation meeting will be followed by three pre-trip learning sessions. For more information, call 747-7780.
