**Important new info for travel plans: If you would like to travel with the majority of the group departing from Memphis and returning to Memphis together we will be making those travel arrangements after January 31 to give people time to register at the early bird price.

If you would like to make travel arrangements on your own you will need to plan to arrive in Tel Aviv on July 15th around the same time as the rest of the group and catch our transportation from the airport to the hotel.
