“This mission commemorates 25 years of struggle and courage,” said

Rabbi Ellen Nemhauser, mission co-host and synagogue educator at Or Hadash. “It represents a dedication to religious pluralism, equality and justice.”

The core 25th Anniversary Celebration Trip will take place from Nov. 3 to 6, with options to stay for Shabbat (through Nov. 9). Highlights of the trip will include seminars with leading scholars on a wide range of issues, high-level meetings with influential members of Knesset, several touring options in and around Jerusalem, opportunities for social justice work and a gala celebration dinner.

“We are thrilled to have delegations from around the country represented,” said Rabbi Dr. Analia Bortz, mission co-host and spiritual leader at Congregation

Or Hadash. “This is an inspirational and unifying effort that resonates strongly

with women and men of all ages, affiliations, and demographics.”
