October 2017 Israel Travel Adventure
Discover Israel with Body Electric!
It has taken months to put this together, but finally we have a program that will take you to the most important sites in Israel AND provide two opportunities to meet men from Israel.
We will begin our program in Tel Aviv where we will have a welcome reception with graduates from Body Electric CBEs in Israel. We’ll spend two nights in Tel Aviv to get a feel of the largest city in Israel. From there we go to Jerusalem, Bethlehem, Masada, Sea of Galilee, Golan Heights, Nazareth, Cana, Rosh Hanikra, Acco, Haifa, Caesarea and finally back to Tel Aviv – with our introductory workshop Celebrating the Body Erotic (CBE) led by William McMeniman built into the middle of the program at a kibbutz in northern Israel.
Our guide is highly experienced and a Body Electric alum. We will be in good hands for this two week program!
