Israel Unlocked: Hebron & Gush Etzion [TUESDAY]

Dear Times of Israel Community member,

Please join us this Tuesday, June 15, for a special installment of our Israel Unlocked virtual tour series, exclusive to the ToI Community. This week, we will tour two different but connected locations, Hebron & Gush Etzion – the biblical heartlands of the Jewish Matriarchs and Patriarchs.

Our expert guide Shulie Mishkin will lead us in this historical exploration of the land of Judah. The areas of Hebron and Gush Etzion have strong significance from biblical times until today, including the incredible story of return in modern times.

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.
