Connecting Past, Present, and Future!
Israel's first lunar spacecraft, aptly named "Beresheet" ("in the beginning") has taken Israeli and Judaism much farther than ever before.
Beresheet is led by a team of three young Israeli engineers who formed the team "SpaceIL."
The Beresheet is expected to land on the moon on April 11th. If successful, Israel will become the fourth nation in history to land on the moon, preceded only by three superpowers: the US, the USSR, and China.
Come celebrate with us!
We will celebrate this spirited endeavor on Sunday, April 14th, from 3 PM to 5PM, with family engagements and flash 10-minute talks on science and Judaism, and much more.
