Israel Center offers travelers help

Staffed by Shlomi Ravid of Israel, Julie Gaines-Golde and Melissa Stern, the center collaborates with the Israel Project, a college campus Israel advocacy group, and the Israel Experience, a nationwide project to promote teen travel to Israel.

Another feature of the center is Tzavta, a network for alumni of long-term Israel programs.

The center is sponsored by the Jewish Community Federation in partnership with the Jewish Community Relations Council, Bureau of Jewish Education and Northern California Hillel Council.

For travel information or to contact Tzavta, call (415) 278-0630.
