The Southern Region of Hadassah is planning a celebratory trip to Israel for May.

The mission, which is planned for May 25 to June 3, is part of the celebration of Israel's 60th birthday. In addition, the region will celebrate the Memphis chapter's 90th anniversary, and the 70th birthday of regional president Edria Ragosin.

This will be an adult trip, for those age 18 and older. Adult children and grandchildren of members are welcome even if they do not live in the region.

The mission will be based at the Dan Panorama in Jerusalem and include meetings with prominent Israelis, visits to the Knesset in Jerusalem and Independence Hall in Tel Aviv, and a trip to Masada and the Dead Sea.

There will also be visits to Hadassah College, a Young Judaea youth hostel, Hadassah Hospital and Meir Shfeya Youth Aliyah Village.

Cost is $1893 per person based on double occupancy for the land portion. Air is roughly $1100 roundtrip from Memphis.
