Question: This is a full day adventure what should we do for lunch?

Answer: there are a couple of options for this. Arrangements can be made for home cooked meals in home of residents or a pre-ordered meal for the group at a local restaurant or Winery. Or if you would like you could also bring sandwiches from home.


Question: okay if we choose to bring our own box to lunch is there a place where the group can sit to eat and bathrooms nearby?

Answer: Yes, no problem, best would be to make these arrangements ahead of time so let us know.


Question: Some of our students are minors so we do not allow alcohol in the program can we visit a winery without tasting the wines?

Answer: Yes, you could choose to either avoid the winery altogether or to visit to learn about the process of making wines and the history without a wine tasting. Just let us know what you would like to do.


Question: Would it be possible for our students to meet with their peers?

Answer: yes we can work on that please let us know their age and special interests and we will try to set up some kind of joint activity with people their age and similar interests.


Question: What is the time frame for a day like this?

Answer: this is a full day program we normally start at about 9 a.m. In the Shomron. Which means that you should have your group on the bus and leaving your location by about 8. We aim to get you back at about 5 p.m. Let us know if you have specific limitations regarding times for the day.

About the Author
I believe that the Jewish people are realizing their destiny though Zionism, the gathering of the people from the four corners of the globe and building a country and unique society. In my eyes, these investments lead to the higher goal of becoming a “light unto the nations.” I believe that peace can be achieved in the Middle East through mutual respect and appreciation that does not require Israel relinquishing any part of its land or compromising its security.
