Chair’s Mission to Israel


May 8 May 16

$9,999 – $11,999 Land-only travel costs

$1,000 refundable deposit holds your spot. Register today as space is limited.

The Chair’s Mission brings to you and a group of 20 men, adventure, camaraderie, insider briefings, up-front personal experiences and behind the scenes glimpses into the heart and soul of the Israeli people. 

As has become tradition, we will be in Israel for Israel’s Memorial Day – Yom HaZikaron and Independence Day – Yom Haatzmaut. Being in Israel during this specific period is truly a gift and will be an experience you will never forget.
