Virtual Walking Tour of Israel

Travel to Israel may be on our hearts and minds, but sadly, in the world's current climate, our visits are regulated to spirit, not in body. Join us for four sessions, where we will virtually travel together to the Jewish State. Each of our sessions will uncover a different layer of Israeli society, history, past and present. Travel with us and add to what you already know about the State of Israel, deepen your historic knowledge of the Land of Israel and strengthen your connection to the Jewish State.

The Early Zionists:
Who were they, what did they believe, where did they go , and what was the link that connected it all. This day will take us on a journey from the ancient port of Jaffa, to the earliest settlements of the First Aliya Moshavot and the alley ways of the first Jewish suburb. We will continue our trek north, to the Kinneret training farm and ultimately uncover the Chalutzim and Chalutzot (pioneers) of the Second Aliya on our visit to the Kinneret Cemetery. A tour such as this would not be complete without meeting a modern-day Zionist with a Second Aliya heart.

The Golan Heights:
In the footsteps of hikers, fighters, farmers and a 5th century frontier. While the Jilaboon is just one example of a river and waterfall on the Golan, it is perhaps THE example of the abundance of water and nature that beckons the hiker. Our visit this day will also include conversation with a local farmer and the tasting of chocolate. We will visit the archeological remains of an ancient synagogue from the Byzantine period. Finally, the geopolitical overviews of the powerful basalt landscape will not only present what became available at a heavy price, we will also visit our neighbors to bear witness to the world war occurring across our borders.

The Second Temple:
Pilgrims and Sects, the footsteps they took, and the stones that fell. Divided we fall, which means once we stood. Who where we 2000 years ago, what did we believe, where did we live, why did it end- and why wasn't that the end? Villages and strongholds, communes and mansions serve as the backdrop on our journey which will include songs of ascent, sites of the fall and the written word that led to return.

Join me on a visit to some hidden gems.
Some of you may have seen these gems and some of you may have not. Some of you may not even think that they are not even so hidden. I can promise you that whether we will find ourselves in known or unknown alleyways of the old City of Jerusalem, meeting people you never thought you would meet (and tasting their delicious food), jumping from cliffs and cooling off, engaging with old caves and walls in a new light, or witness your guide being moved to tears- this will be a virtual tour that you will not forget. Israel should always be about experiencing new places, seen for the first time, and visiting old ones- seeing them anew.
 
 
Uri Feinberg has worked in the field of Jewish education since 1995 and has been a licensed Tour Educator since 2000. 
Emigrating from the US with his family when he was 10, Uri grew up in Jerusalem, served in the IDF and traveled the world. He graduated from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem in 2004 with an MA in Contemporary Jewry. He also holds a BA in History and English Literature.  
Uri has guided teen trips in Israel, worked as a Jewish history teacher for semester programs in Israel, as a guide in Europe as gateways to Israel and as a tour educator for families, adults of all ages, synagogue groups and specialty tours. In 2010, Uri, his wife and three daughters returned from three years in Boston MA, where he served as the Director of Education for Temple Israel, Boston.  
Uri now works for Da’at Educational Expeditions using his educational experience and background to write group programs and to lead them, assist in the professional development of Da’at Educators and to share in the work of educational innovation.  
Uri’s experience has been driven by a clear desire to share the power of the Land of Israel. There is power in self exploration and self discovery. As the layers of history are uncovered and the wonder of a modern State is presented, the story told becomes personally relevant. Uri allows himself to be inspired as well, both by the sites that are re-visited and by the people he visits them with.
