LA Unity Mission



Rabbis on a Mission

Pics are coming in of the first- ever   joint mission of Orthodox, Conservative and Reform rabbis to Israel. The group of 16 rabbis left Monday and is now winding up a whirlwind 3 day trip through Israel. 

The mission was the brainchild of Los Angeles Consul General Jacob Dayan, who envisioned the trip as a way to demonstrate Jewish unity over Israel. The delegation includes rabbis representing the three main denominations in Judaism.  In the course of its visit the delegation has visited the Rabin Memorial, marking 14 years since the assassination of Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin;  the Bialik-Rogozin School in Tel Aviv where immigrant children attain their education; the Ayalim pioneering settlement in the Negev, and the Western Wall.  The group also met with Israel’s President Shimon Peres.

The photos here are from the group’s visit to the Hazon Yeshaya soup kitchen in Jerusalem.

Accompanying Dayan were the following rabbis:  Rabbis Daniel Bouskila, Ken Chasen, Mark Diamond, Denise Eger, Morley Feinstein, Ed Feinstein, Mordecai Finley, Laura Geller, Donald Goor, Eli Herscher, Marvin Hier, Isaac Jeret, Yosef Kanefsky, Adam Kligfeld, Elazar Muskin, John Rosove, Kalman Topp, Stewart Vogel, Robert Wexler, David Wolpe.

The Jewish Journal will have a full story on the trip in next week’s edition.
