Valley Beit Midrash has been selected as a partner to pilot a new national initiative, Honeymoon Israel, which will bring 20 Phoenix couples, ages 20-45, on a trip to Israel.
When he was approached with the idea of piloting the program in Phoenix, Rabbi Dr. Shmuly Yanklowitz, executive director of Valley Beit Midrash, said he jumped at the chance. “Not only are we trying to engage more young adults in the community, but we also feel like that is when people are deciding if they’re going to commit their lives to being a part of the Jewish community or not.”
