Strengthening the Bonds of our Jewish Community

Reflections on the Irving Rabin Community Building Mission to Israel

Last month, leaders from 24 Bay Area Jewish organizations participated in the Irving Rabin Community Building Mission to Israel, a pilot program of the Federation in partnership with Varda Rabin. The goals of the program are community building and deepening relationships among community partners.

Here, we have compiled personal reflections offered by some of the participants of the trip:

Dan Glass, the Brandeis School of San Francisco

Jamie Simon, Camp Tawonga

Ollie Benn, San Francisco Hillel

Ovid David, Congregation Beth Sholom

Rabbi Joel Landau, Adath Israel (Blog 1, Blog 2)

Rabbi Noa Kushner, The Kitchen

Ruben Arquilevich, URJ Camp Newman

Sara Bamberger, Kevah
