JEP Edinburgh 2018

JEP’s first event of 2018 took place at the end of April, in the historic capital of Edinburgh, Scotland.  The event started with a visit to the city centre, to explore the Castle, the Royal Mile and ending at the modern Scottish Parliament. In the evening Rabbi Dr Daniel Herskowitz led an informative session about Israel and Space technological development. A fun Gala Dinner involved a speech from former local Councillor and Edinburgh Festival Chairman Eric Milligan.

On Friday, participants then experienced all aspects of Scotland’s scenery from the ultra modern Kelpies’ horses monument to the scenic Stirling Castle and beautiful Highland Scenery in the Trossachs. Shabbat included relationship advice from our Life Coach Shelley Whitehead,  as well as further discussions with Rabbi Dr Daniel Herskowitz. On Sunday participants got to enjoy the Scottish coastline at North Berwick and not miss out on tasting whisky following a tour of the Glenkinchie Distillery, the southern most distillery in Scotland.
