Residents at B’nai B’rith senior housing facilities, along with B’nai B’rith members and supporters around the world will experience the wonders of Israel live without leaving their homes thanks to a new virtual touring program launching March 11.
The B’nai B’rith World Center in Jerusalem will broadcast tours from Israel’s capital using breakthrough live streaming technology, allowing viewers thousands of miles away to experience the epic story and inspiring sites of Jerusalem.
The program launches March 11 at 10 a.m. ET with a three hour tour, hosted by a leading Israeli tour guide who will take viewers on an excursion to some of Jerusalem’s most historically and religiously significant sites.
The program will give viewers an unedited, live view of life in Israel's capital and the sense that they are right there with the guide. This provides a unique opportunity for those who have not yet visited Israel.
The streaming technology will also allow viewers to text questions to the hosts while the show is in progress for more in-depth explanations and a better understanding of the country.
This is a unique experience, offered only to members and affiliate-institutions of B'nai B'rith.
This broadcast will serve as a pilot for future broadcasts featuring other parts of Israel.
