The 2017 Spring AFSI Mission has just concluded, and even now, with it all fresh in their minds, AFSI travelers can look back at the past week in Israel, knowing it certainly was a special time to be in the Jewish homeland.
From the Golan, Tzfat and Haifa in the north, to Tel Aviv and Jerusalem, and to communities in Judea and Samaria, including the sacred city of Hebron, the group did and saw a lot, including celebrating Yom Yerushalayim and witnessing President Trump’s visit to Israel.
Below are several photos that were not originally included in our daily email blasts. We present them now, as a brief reminder of some of the activities performed and places visited during the mission.
AFSI Co-Executive Director Judy Kadish and Yifa Segal of the International Legal Forum, join in celebrating Yom Yerushalayim with a group of Chinese tourists outside the Damascus gate to the Old City.
