On April 21, 19 men left Philadelphia on a journey to Israel for the Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia’s Men’s Mission IV. This mission is made possible by the Fishman Family Fund.
Highlights of the trip included a helicopter ride to the north, a tour by jeep of the Golan Heights, a climb up Mount Hermon, meetings with Israeli business leaders and government officials, and a visit to our partnership region in Netivot and Sdot Negev. This annual trip has been called a life-changing week for the almost 80 men who have been part of this group.
Participants included Michael Feinman, Lou Fromm, Scott Gallant, Michael Gevurtz, Geoff Gross, Jonathan Gusdorff, Mark Klein, Scott Lustgarten, Jason Mandel, Ross Miller, Ryan Pearson, Eric Pearson, Brett Rubinson, Jon Schwartz, David Silvera, Marc Simon, Jon Stevens, Steve Weissman and Andrew Yaffe.
