Doctors, Dentists and Friends Mission to Israel in its 13th year


By Daniel Koren--Celebrating its Bar Mitzvah this year, UJA Federation of Greater Toronto’s annual Doctors, Dentists and Friends Mission to Israel will bring participants to on an action-packed and exciting journey that offers a deep and meaningful insight of the country.  

“When Howard Price and I started this mission 13 years ago it was just a dream but it has now become a yearly reality,” said the Mission’s Chair and co-founder Irving Gottesman.

“Each year a different itinerary, a different contingent but with a similar core of participants, the same guide (Ezra) and the same excitement. With each passing year it’s become more engaging, and more inspiring! Am Yisrael chai!”  

This year’s mission will take place October 13th20th.  The itinerary includes a tour of the Supreme Court, a Jeep tour in the Judean Desert, a visit to UJA supported projects in Sderot, a special visit to an army base, a hike at Ein Gedi Nature Reserve, a tour of the Knesset (Israeli legislative branch), visits to the Western Wall and Yad Vashem, a walking tour of the Old City in Jerusalem, and much more.  

To learn more about this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, join the Doctors, Dentists and friends for an informative session on Monday, March 4 at 7:30pm in Tamari Family Hall at the Lipa Green Centre.
