Israel Unlocked: The powerful Negev [TUESDAY]

Dear Times of Israel Community member,

Please join us this Tuesday, December 1 for the next installment of the Israel Unlocked virtual tour series, exclusive to the TOI Community. We will tour southern Israel and uncover the Negev desert on the 47th anniversary of the death of David Ben Gurion.

From the Biblical tels, to the 11 communities set up overnight, from the creative water solutions, to the farms and industries of today – the Negev has a powerful story to tell.

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.
