Travel to Israel March 15th at 7:00 pm
Emily Taub is an Antrim native who returned home last May after graduating from Goucher College in Baltimore, Maryland. In January her Jewish heritage and love of travel brought her to Israel on a free tour run by Birthright Israel, a non-profit organization. She spent ten days traveling with 30 of her American peers, learning about the culture, history, politics and religions of Israel, as well as getting to know the people who live there. The group visited such sites as Mt. Masada, The Dead Sea, the Western (or Wailing) Wall in Jerusalem, and the Negev Desert. The group also spent multiple nights at Kibbutzim, one night in the desert in a Bedouin tent, and many, many hours on the bus together! Stop by for some interesting stories, fun facts, good food and photos from the trip, and learn something new about this beautiful and ancient country! Free and open to all.
