Tikkun Olam in Guatemala

May, 2011

I had the amazing opportunity to co-lead a tour to Guatemala with Rabbi Elyse Goldstein of Kolel - the Adult Centre for Liberal Jewish Learning.  Along with 7 other women we traveled throughout Guatemala.  We trekked through jungle in the Peten, we boated on Lake Atitlan and we zip-lined across canyons with the monkeys and birds in Panajachel.

The tour culminated with a trip to La Union where the participants taught an English class, taught a yoga class to indigenous women and students and painted one of Access Education's new classrooms.

Thanks for a great opportunity!
