Visit Israel in a Unique Way

     Since 1983, over 3,000 retirees from Canada and the United States have skipped the annual ritual of heading to Florida for the winter, choosing instead to spend the season in Israel with the Canadian & American Active Retirees in Israel (CAARI) program.

    The CAARI program, designed for the active 50+ age group, offers an in-depth view of Israel connecting you with Eretz Yisrael and its people. Traveling through the country, meeting Israelis and working side by side them is what CAARI is all about.

     The program consists of volunteer service, touring, a speakers program, and much more. Participate in the entire program (6 weeks), or selected portions of the program (2 to 6 week segments as you choose).

     For information about the CAARI program from a Temple member who has visited Israel many times on the program, speak with Burton Figler who will be happy to answer any questions you may have.
