NOV. 12-20, 2006

Americans For a Safe Israel/AFSI is celebrating its 20th Anniversary of leading Chizuk missions to the threatened communities of Israel. AFSI follows the biblical “road map” which charts a whole Israel, and an indivisible Jerusalem. We urge everyone who believes as we do to join this trip.

We’ll arrive in Israel on Nov. 13 and tour the threatened hilltop communities in the Shomron. We’ll continue these visits on Nov. 14 and then head north to Tsfat for a two night stay. Tsfat, Kiryat Shemonah, on the Lebanese border, along with other northern communities that were shelled during the Lebanon war, will be our focus.

We will be in Jerusalem on Nov. 16, exploring the eastern half of the city that is being reclaimed by Jews.

Friday afternoon, Nov. 17- through Sunday morning, Nov. 19, we will be in Hebron for the incomparable experience of Shabbat Chaye Sarah, the celebration of the Torah portion that documents Abraham’s purchase of Sarah’s grave.

Sunday, Nov. 19, we will visit the refugees from the Gush Katif expulsion of August 2005. That night we will head for the airport and our return to New York on Nov. 20.

Throughout the trip there will be ongoing meetings with grass roots heroes, Members of Knesset, and Israeli dignitaries.

The cost is kept at a modest $2200 (not including airport taxes, gratuities, and any additional charges for personal changes in the flight arrangements), which covers round-trip airfare, expert tour guides, tour bus and driver, all hotels (double occupancy – additional cost for single supplement), all breakfasts and dinners and some lunches.

Reservations, requiring a non-refundable deposit of $200, are now recommended. Please call AFSI, 212-828-2424; 1-800-235-3658; or email: VISA or Mastercard charges will be accepted for members only. Land only arrangements are also organized.

The Tide Rises, the tide Falls

The tide rises, the tide falls,

The twilight darkens, the curlew calls;

Along the sea-sands damp and brown

The traveller hastens toward the town,

And the tide rises, the tide falls.


Darkness settles on roofs and walls,

But the sea, the sea in the darkness calls;

the little waves, with their soft, white hands,

Efface the footprints in the sands,

And the tide rises, the tide falls.


The morning breaks; the steeds in their stalls

Stamp and neigh, as the hostler calls;

The day returns, but nevermore

Returns the traveller to the shore,

And the tide rises, the tide falls.
