Who is our travel partner?
After a robust selection process, PAS has partnered with Via Sabra. If you have questions about the trip you can contact them at Parkave@viasabra.com.
Will we be flying together and if not, what flights does PAS recommend?
We will not be flying as a group. American, Delta, El Al, and United all have flights daily to Israel. The flights from Israel to the UAE are included in the price and will be organized by our tour provider. Everyone should plan to arrive in Israel by late afternoon October 30.
What do I need to know about passports?
Now is the time to make sure your passports are up to date. Remember to make sure your passport is valid for at least six months after the final day of the trip to ensure smooth and easy travel.
May we arrive early?
You are welcome to fly to Israel at any time as long as you are available to meet the group in Tel Aviv in time for dinner on October 30.
Will there be any free time for shopping and seeing family or friends?
The itinerary is chock-full of important sites and experiences, and there is also some free time in each one. While there are some opportunities to shop, grab a coffee, and enjoy the sights and sounds of Israel and the UAE, if you would like extended time with family and friends or for shopping, we encourage you to come ahead or stay after the trip.
When will the itineraries be available?
The draft itinerary is available online here. It is important to note that this is a draft and subject to change at any time. Updated drafts will be posted online and shared with participants at pre-trip gatherings before our departure.
Will I be able to meet other people who are going on the trip before we leave?
PAS gives as much attention to gatherings, education, and community-building before the trip as it does to the journey itself. A pillar of our PAS travel philosophy is that a trip is just one part of our larger communal learning experience. Our trips are preceded by pre-trip gatherings and followed up with gatherings and reunions to continue the conversation long after we have returned home, and to share our experiences and knowledge with the rest of our community.
