First time ever: The NSW Jewish Board of Deputies, in conjunction with HonestReporting, is delighted to announce a VIP Advocates Mission to Israel, November 26th - December 4th, 2012

  • Hear what’s really going on in Israel in closed-door briefings with highest-level experts from all key sectors
  • Explore the history and centrality of Jerusalem to the Jewish People
  • Visit a successful Israeli start-up company
  • Discover what settlers, peace advocates and Israeli Arabs have in common – and where they disagree
  • Go to the same “hot spots” as the professional journalists and decide for yourself if their reporting is accurate

All this and more, together with:

  • Eight nights accommodation at the luxurious five-star David Citadel Hotel, Jerusalem
  • Great Kosher dining – all meals included
  • Free cell phone rental for all participants

Testimonial from HR Missions

Having been to Israel over one hundred times, the HonestReporting Mission was one of the best planned, substantive, high level and upscale Missions which I have been on... outstanding program with knowledgeable speakers.”
