Dates:  Monday, December 4, 2017 at 7 p.m.   –   Sunday, December 10 at 3:30 p.m.

Program Times:  There is much to learn and experience, and so our days will be understandably full but not marathons. (Of course, if you’d like to keep a full Orayta learning schedule and experience “late night in the Beis”, you’re more than welcome!”). Most mornings will begin at approximately 9:15am.  Several of the evenings will include special programming after dinner, but that will come after a bit of recovery time available in the afternoon.  Tuesday and Wednesday evenings will conclude with dinners ending at approximately 7pm, if you would like to arrange to see friends or go out.  Friday is an off day until Shabbat services begin at 4:30pm.  If you would like more time to spend with family and friends then please feel free to arrive a few days early or stay a few days afterwards.  There’s never enough time when you are visiting Israel!

Administrative Fee: $375 registration fee is due by October 31, 2017. Registration may be handled at www.orayta.org/support-orayta/general-payment.html.  Please be sure to note "Orayta Men’s Learning Mission" on the memo line.
