Celebrate like a local: festivals during Sukkot 2011">Celebrate like a local: festivals during Sukkot 2011

Posted September 24th, 2011
 
Growing up, you might have celebrated Sukkot by going to your family, friends’, or synagogue’s sukkah, shaking the lulav and etrog, and eating outside under the stars. But if you are spending this Sukkot in Israel, there’s no reason to stay confined to your backyard—use the whole country as your sukkah!
 

Seven unique ways to spend the chagim in Israel">Seven unique ways to spend the chagim in Israel

Posted September 24th, 2011
Every time we ask alumni of Masa Israel programs what the best part of their semester or year was in Israel, the same things are repeated over and over: freedom to explore Israel on their own, Yom Ha’atzmaut (Independence Day) and the other national holidays in the spring, and thechagim—the High Holidays.
 
It’s no wonder.
