For decades, community leaders throughout the Commonwealth have experienced the rich culture, dynamic history, and innovative high-tech economy of Israel with JCRC of Greater Boston.

This JCRC Study Tour for Community Leaders offers a unique opportunity to meet the people of Israel and to gain a better understanding of the complexities and challenges facing the country and the region. Participants will travel the length and breadth of Israel, learning from government officials and religious, academic, media and business leaders. We will visit historical and religious sites such as Jerusalem’s Old City and Bethlehem’s Church of the Nativity, spend a day in Boston’s partner city, Haifa, and explore Israel’s booming tech sector. We will meet with Jews, Muslims, and Christians; Israelis and Palestinians; and individuals representing a wide spectrum of political and social thought.
