The Zionist Organization of America/ZOA and Americans for a Safe Israel (AFSI) are pleased to announce that spaces are almost completely filled for their Spring mission to Israel which will be held from May 29-June 7, 2005.
The group will depart Sunday, May 29 and will visit communities in the Shomron, Gush Katif / Gaza to show our strong opposition to the Sharon expulsion plans. Other stops include the holy city of Hebron and Jerusalem.
As always, a host of distinguished speakers will be included in the ZOA/AFSI program. On our November trip, some of the speakers we heard were: Itamar Marcus, Moshe Feiglin, David Wilder, Daniella Weiss, Ruth Matar, Dror Vanunu, Moshe Saperstein, MK Benny Elon, MK Dr. Arieh Eldad, and Josh Reinstein, spokesman for MK Yuri Shtern.
The cost of the trip, including flight and hotels, all breakfasts, most dinners and some lunches, is $2000 per person, double occupancy, plus airport taxes ($77). Single occupancy additional cost is $200. Non-AFSI or Non-ZOA members will be charged an additional $100, unless they prefer to join either organization for the annual cost of $50.
Those who wish to make their own travel arrangements, and simply join us for the land part of the trip, are welcome to do so. The cost for the land only is $1000. Israelis, too, are invited to meet us at the airport when we arrive at Ben Gurion and join us for this important solidarity mission. But we must, of course, know about their participation in advance, and they will be charged the land costs. Participants may also extend their trips, or meet us in Israel. It is very important that we know of any deviations from the group travel plans. Please notify us of your specific travel needs, including your preference for JFK or Newark departures and arrivals.
Call AFSI at 212-828-2424 or 1-800-235-3658 to register or if you have special travel needs.
