Israel is made up of many layers. This includes levels of religious observance, diversity of cultures and quite literally, the layers of stones in buildings that reveal knowledge of past civilizations.

On Jan. 22, 23 participants — writers and editors from Jewish newspapers from across North America — gathered in the lobby of the Inbal Hotel Jerusalem to kick off a 10-day whirlwind tour of Israel. The AJPA trip was co-sponsored by El Al and the Israel Ministry of Tourism, the latter of which also hosted our first dinner in Israel, across the street from the hotel at the Olives & Fish restaurant.
