Mosaics of the Ancient Galil:
An Art/Study Tour
Sunday March 19-Monday March 20th
Departing from Jerusalem on Sunday morning, we will visit several ancient synagogues in the Galil and Golan from the times of the Mishna & Gemara. Time will be given during the day for sketching & photographing the scenery, architecture & various mosaics. In the early evening, we will arrive at the beautiful “Amirei Hagalil” spa hotel with plenty of time to enjoy the health club or reserve a massage before a delicious dinner. Following dinner, Avigayle Adler will lead participants in a workshop where each participant will create their own mosaic masterpiece inspired by the day’s visits. On Monday, our tour will continue with a newfound appreciation of the process that went into creating some of the mosaics which we will see. We will stop for a picnic lunch and return to Jerusalem on Monday evening at approximately 7 pm. The tour is open to men and women (ages 18+) Singles and couples welcome. Additional fee for single occupancy room. No prior art or drawing experience necessary.
