The Masa Program: NYC Trip to Understand the Jewish Immigrant Experience

Sunday, May 5, 2024 27 Nisan 5784

6:30 AM - 10:00 PM

Registration is now closed. Our trip is fully booked!


All 8th – 12th graders are invited to join Dr. Eliyahu Krigel and Marisa Beede for a special day trip to NYC to learn about the Jewish immigrant experience!


The Masa Program at Beth El is our new program for 8th – 12th graders. This is a travel impact program that will consist of a combination of meetings, culminating in a trip. 

Masa means journey. This new program is focused on exploring the Jewish journey of our post B’nei Mitzvah students through travel impact learning experiences.

In this first year of the program, we will be taking a trip to NYC for the day. We’ll leave on a private bus from the Beth El parking lot at 6:30am on May 5, and we’ll be back to Beth El at 10:00pm (on May 5). The cost is $50 for Beth El members thanks to the generous support of Men’s Club! Non-members in 8th – 12th grade are also invited to participate for $100.

During the trip we will visit Ellis Island, The Tenement Museum, and the Top of the Rock. We will also experience Kosher dining in NYC. In addition to the trip, we will also gather once before to help plan the day and once after to reflect on our experience together. Space is limited to 20 students.

Please contact Dr. Eliyahu Krigel at with questions and for more information.
