Calling all TRS Travelers!

Taking a trip with other members of Temple Rodef Shalom is always a great way to learn more about the diversity of Jewish communities worldwide but also a way to meet other members.

We have a few exciting TRS trips under construction for the next year and want to get the word out about destinations and dates! 

Here is a line-up* of the trips we are planning:

November 14 – 17, 2024, Cantor Sydney Michaeli will co-lead a trip to Brooklyn called “Hipsters and Hasids.” It will explore the diversity of Jewish communities, from Crown Heights to Williamsburg to Park Slope.

February 13 – 17 2025, Cantor Michael Shochet will co-lead a trip to Hollywood to learn more about the Jews – the studio “moguls” – who had an outsized influence on the development of the movie-making industry through their vision, work ethic, and prodigious business acumen. 

March 29 – April 8, 2025, Rabbi Jeffrey Saxe and Hannah Moore will lead Return Travelers to Israel. This trip will be for those who have been to Israel before; a pre-trip will be organized for those who have not visited there before. Led by Hannah Moore, it will depart on March 27 and spend two additional nights in Jerusalem before the main trip joins.

Late April 2025, we are considering a four-day trip to Charleston. Final dates are TBD.

If any (or all!) of these destinations are of interest, please register for more information and pencil us in. We look forward to traveling with you!
