Twenty couples from Phoenix and Tucson recently traveled to Israel through the Honeymoon Israel program. The group was led by Rabbi Dr. Shmuly Yanklowitz, president and dean of Valley Beit Midrash of Phoenix, and Matt Landau of the Jewish Federation of Southern Arizona. This was the third cohort to go to Israel through Valley Beit Midrash. Honeymoon Israel provides highly subsidized ($1,800 per couple), trips to Israel for couples, ages 25-40 with at least one Jewish partner, early in their committed relationship.
