Alliance planning 2nd Solidarity Mission to Israel


The Jewish Alliance of Greater Rhode Island is organizing a second community Solidarity Mission to Israel, for the fall.

The 22 community members who participated in the first Israel Solidarity Mission, Jan. 14-18, saw the situation there firsthand, from Hostages Square to Mount Herzl cemetery, and lent a helping hand.

As the anniversary of the Oct. 7 massacre that started the Israel-Hamas war approaches, the Alliance invites you to join the mission to show your support for the Jewish homeland by bearing witness, visiting and volunteering to aid the people in affected Israeli communities.

The unique itinerary may include, but is not limited to, travel to Tel Aviv, Jerusalem and Gaza; visiting the families of the hostages and wounded soldiers; volunteering on a farm and/or packing food for Israel’s needy; visiting the Anu Museum, in Tel Aviv; a journey to the Western Wall; an opportunity to pay your respects for the victims at Reim Field (the site of the Supernova music festival); and shopping and dining to support struggling Israeli businesses.

The estimated cost for the all-inclusive five-to-seven-day mission package is $4,500-$5,000 and includes airfare (included in the price, but purchased individually), all hotels, some meals, all ground transportation by private bus with an English-speaking guide, all land tours, entrance fees and security.

The final cost is dependent on the number of participants, airfare costs at the time of travel and hotel costs.
