Take A Look; Take A Trip

Mishkefet is Hebrew for binoculars.

It's also the name of a new group set to encourage and facilitate visits and trips to Judea and Samaria. Chaim Levinson informs us:

The target audience of Mishkefet, which calls itself a "national acquaintance project," is secular Israelis who do not venture out to the West Bank settlements often, and the tours are due to explore historical and national Jewish heritage sites, as well as farms and other agricultural projects.

Mishkefet plans to bring half a million visitors on the tours, and will enlist the help of field schools to organize them. Participants will pay 45 shekels to take part, with the rest of the costs subsidized by donations to the foundation.

Get on line.

Cheap flights to Kuwait People travel to wonder at the heights of mountains, at the huge waves of the sea, at the long courses of rivers, at the vast compass of the ocean, at the circular motions of the stars; and they pass by themselves without wondering.
