Gateway to the Land of Israel: The Port of Old Jaffa with Jonathan Goldstein

Thursday, December 2, 2021 28 Kislev 5782

7:30 PM - 9:30 PMZoom

Join us for a virtual Hanukkah candle-lighting and a journey to the land of the Hanukkah miracle, Israel!

We’ll travel to Jaffa, the oldest-known port city on earth. Jaffa features prominently in the Bible: Noah, Solomon, Jonah's whale, Judah Macabee, Andromeda of Greek mythology, Richard the Lionheart, and Theodore Herzl are all connected to the storied town. Today, the Belle of the Mediterranean is an artists' colony overlooking modern Tel Aviv and the sea. We'll virtually step through the gate that pilgrims and conquerors have been using for thousands of years to enter the Promised Land.

About Jonathan Goldstein   After a stint in finance in NYC, Jonathan made Aliya in 2006 and got his hands in the dirt, earning an MA in Land of Israel Studies and Archeology at Bar Ilan University as well as the Ministry of Tourism's Guiding Certification. Since then, he has been creating Jewish heritage travel experiences around the world focused on exploring questions of identity and our place in this complex world. His expertise includes Israel, Central Europe, New York City, and the last 4,000 years of Jewish history.
