With an emphasis on Sephardim, Judaism, its’ people, language, history, traditions, heroes, places and values will all be brought to life through meaningful excursions filled with a sense of adventure. MLP participants will enjoy the best that Israel has to offer, with full access to Israel’s most sought after attractions. They will stay in fine accommodations and be treated to Kosher Israeli food and guided luxury transportation throughout the trip. Rabbi Yitzchak Sakhai of S.T.A.R., in addition to adult chaperons and an armed security guard/Medic, will accompany MLP participants.
