BJBE 2018 Teen Mission to Kolin and Israel
June 14-June 25, 2018

Led by BJBE clergy and Ezra Kedar, we’ll tend to the graves of those who once prayed with our Kolin Torah Scrolls in the Czech Republic, visit Terezin Concentration Camp, and stroll the streets of picturesque Prague. We will then journey home to Israel where we’ll savor as much of our beautiful country as possible, from the Knerret in the North, to Masada in the South, and beautiful Jerusalem at the heart.

For more information, please contact Dani Glass.
