Video: Rabbi Jacobs Visits with Teens in Israel



Rabbi Rick Jacobs has just returned from Israel, which he visited during the Thanksgiving holiday with the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations. In this video, Rabbi Jacobs meets with teenage participants in the Israeli Reform Movement’s Mechina Project, a post-high school, pre-military year of service and community. One of the participants speaks of the group’s experience in a bomb shelter in Beersheva, the largest city in Southern Israel.
