Four hundred South Floridians have joined together on a “Mega Mission” to Israel, organized by the Miami Jewish Federation.
The 10-day trip embarked on Sunday. Highlights will include a meeting with Israeli President Shimon Peres, and visits to historic and religious sites, concerts, and other events.
The Miami Jewish Federation contributed $600,000 to the travelers, in order to help those who could not afford to make the journey.
The massive Floridian trip, called Journey to Jerusalem, will be covered with live reports from regional 7News reporter Rosh Lowe, who has joined the group on their trip.Malkah Fleisher
