This October’s Annual UJA Mission Celebrates its Bar Mitzvah
By Daniel Horowitz--As Diaspora Jews we know that there’s nothing better than celebrating a bar mitzvah in Israel. And, from October 13th to 20th, 2013, United Jewish Appeal of Greater Toronto makes that opportunity a reality aboard its 13th annual Doctors, Dentists and Friends Mission to Israel, and the only bar mitzvah gift required is your participation.
The annual mission – chaired by Irv Gottesman and Howard Price – is a great way to experience all that the Jewish state has to offer, thanks to the mission’s special itinerary, complete with an action-packed and exciting line-up designed to bring you a deeper insight into the country.
The mission, open to donors who make a minimum household gift of $3,000 to UJA’s Annual Campaign 2014, will provide participants a series of exclusive briefings from a number of Israeli insiders; a visit to pharmaceutical company Teva; an opportunity to visit UJA projects and see your dollars in action, and a very special Shabbat dinner with the incoming Canadian Ambassador to Israel.
Mission participants will also enjoy a walking tour of Jerusalem’s Old City, an unforgettable visit to the Western Wall Tunnels, an emotional tour of Yad Vashem, and a tour of the Herzl Museum, including an audio-visual encounter with none other than Theodor Herzl, the visionary of the Jewish state.
