Israel is a resilient country — it has to be, given how frequently it faces threats to its very existence. As we hope for enduring peace and stability in the region, join UJA’s Heritage Society for a “return” to the shuk as we tour one of Israel’s most vibrant culinary scenes with a professional guide. We’ll also learn how to make some simple and delicious tahini-inspired recipes with a prominent local chef.
Finally, you'll hear about UJA's ongoing work in Israel, including our work counseling people suffering from trauma and strengthening bridges of understanding among the country’s diverse populations.
