Slichot Tours

For the past 19 nights, thousands of soldiers have been using the Menachem Begin Heritage Center as a starting point for Slichot tours and a center for lectures about the holidays.

An initiative of the Jewish Consciousness unit of the IDF, soldiers are brought to Jerusalem at the High Holidays period and visit synagogues, the Kotel and other special locations.

Slichot tours in Jerusalem have been going on for at least 20 years and have proven popular with both religious and non-religious Jews.

And now the army has created this special program specifically for soldiers. The Menachem Begin Heritage Center has been full each night of these tours.
