Telfed Trip to Jerusalem

You are cordially invited to join our next tiyul on Wednesday 21st March.

We will first visit the Israel offices of the Joint Distribution Committee (JDC) in Jerusalem. The “Joint”, as it is affectionately known, was founded in 1914 and is the largest Jewish humanitarian organization in the world.  It was established in order to help Jews and Jewish communities throughout the world, especially in times of emergency or crisis. We will meet with former South African, Solly Kaplinski, Executive Director, Overseas Joint Ventures for the JDC and learn about the work of this amazing organization that touches the lives of hundreds of thousands of Jews, worldwide.

You are invited to bring your own picnic lunch and join us in Gan Hapa'amon, which we are told has a lovely picnic area with benches and tables.

Following lunch, we will visit the Allenby Exhibition at the Tower of David Museum of the History of Jerusalem. The exhibition commemorates General Edmund Allenby’s entry into Jerusalem on 11 December 1917, following the surrender of the city by its Ottoman mayor. One hundred years later we will be visiting the very place where these dramatic events transpired.

There is likely to be non-strenuous walking.
