Orange County Jewish Community Scholar ProgramPreviously October 18th and continuing through Thursday October 29th, we will be offering online programs at 10:00 AM PDT and at 12:30 PM PDT every day other than Friday the 23rd and Saturday the 24th. The AM series features programs with amazing Israelis, including Ruth Calderon, Michael Freund, Udi Goren, Ayelet Gundar Goshen, Melila Hellner, Rachel Korazim, Shirel Horovitz, Dorit Rabinyan, Ayat Abou Shmeiss, Natalie Marcus and Asaf Beiser. On the PM track, join us for guided adventures with Uri Feinberg in Tel Aviv, the Negev, Jerusalem and the Galilee. Though this series in no way can replace the actual visit we were planning (which visit has been postponed to next October), we do hope that it gives you a taste of what a CSP Israel travel adventure is like – thought-provoking, eclectic, deep, with lots of options.

Our trips are definitely demanding (physically and intellectually), but they are immensely rewarding. So, pack some snacks, dress in comfortable clothes and lets go (to your chairs)! This travel adventure is free of charge, but we ask that you consider making a donation of $36 or more to CSP to underwrite one or more musical events with Israeli musicians who are in desperate need of funds due to the cancellation of their concerts and events as a result of the pandemic. Donations can be made at this CSP LINK or by check to CSP at 5 Klamath, Irvine, CA 92612. For more information about our CSP adventure next October, check out this link. At the end of our trip, consider staying longer and joining all or part of the excellent spiritual tour curated by Rabbi Kvod Wieder of Temple Beth El.
