What is everyday life like in Israel like now?
How can we show our support and love from across the ocean?

Uri Feinberg is a world-class Reform Movement Jewish educator and tour guide. Emigrating from the US with his family when he was 10, Uri grew up in Jerusalem, served in the IDF, and traveled the world. He graduated from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem with a master’s degree in Contemporary Jewish Studies. He also holds a bachelor’s degree in History and English Literature and has been a licensed tour guide since 2000. Uri’s greatest satisfaction in guiding trips in Israel and across the world is sharing the power and potential of travel to shape one's life perspective. Uri enjoys spending time with his family, hiking, and mountain biking. One of his daughters currently serves in the IDF in the Iron Dome unit for her regular army service. His older daughter is serving in the Army Reserves and has been called back to her base: also in the Iron Dome unit.
