Israeli-flagJoin the Israel Matters Committee
         on a full day excursion to Philadelphia!

  • Experience the Culinary Delights of Israel!
  • Participate in a Guided Tour of The American Jewish History Museum!

Enjoy the company of other Temple Beth-El members in a "daycation," departing at 11:00 am on Sunday, November 10, 2013 to Philadelphia. Going as a group of 15 or more allows us to arrange a guided tour of the fabulous American Jewish History Museum. After a visit lasting approximately 3 hours, we will go at about 4:30 p.m. to Zahav, an Israeli Restaurant that has become a premier dining spot in just a little over four years since it opened.

A recent reviewer wrote:

"No chef in the city is creating food as thrillingly personal and well-executed [...] His small plates at Zahav, meanwhile, are vivid, fresh, and inventive, whether it's a riff on Yemenite soup with braised turkey and baby turnips bathed in earthy fenugreek broth, or a nod to his Eastern European roots with house-smoked sable mounded atop fresh challah that oozes egg yolk when you take slice."

Going as a group affords us the opportunity to take advantage of the "small plates" style restaurant and expand the tasting selection.

Can you think of a better way to spend a late fall afternoon? We are arranging group transportation to leave from Temple Beth-El at 11:00 a.m. We will arrive at the museum at about 12:30 pm and then proceed to Zahav at about 4:30 pm. The exact times may need to be adjusted. The cost, including travel, admission to the museum and dinner is $82.00 for adults and $55.00 for children up to age 13.

If you would like to join us, reservations and payment are due as soon as possible. This will permit us to reserve the tour and restaurant as needed to guarantee our spot.

Hope you can join us!
