Israel Unlocked: Haifa — Red All Over [TUESDAY]

Dear Times of Israel Community member,

Please join us this Tuesday, February 9, for the next installment of the Israel Unlocked virtual tour series, exclusive to the Times of Israel Community. We will go north to virtually visit Haifa, some 80 years after the first ship with “illegal” immigrants broke through the British blockade on the Haifa shores.

When looking at Israel’s cities, the joke goes “Jerusalem prays, Tel Aviv plays, but Haifa works.” Known as the Red City for its strong labor unions, Haifa is also one of the most diverse cities in Israel. Come see the sites of this fascinating city by the bay and meet its personalities — from the Prophet Elijah to Abba Hushi.

About our guide: Shulie Mishkin made aliyah from New York with a Master’s degree in Jewish History from Columbia University. After completing the Ministry of Tourism guide course in 1997, she began guiding professionally and has since taught and guided all ages, from toddlers to retirees.

Shulie’s tours provide a complete picture of the Land of Israel and Jewish heritage, with a strong reliance on sources ranging from the Bible to 19th century travelers’ reports. Alongside her regular guide work, she teaches “tour and text” courses in the Jerusalem institutions of Pardes and Matan and provides tours for special needs students in the “Darkaynu” program. Shulie lives in Alon Shvut with her husband Jonathan and their five kids.

We hope to see you there — and thank you for being part of our Community!
