Wednesday 15 July  2020

Electronic meeting at 13:00

Speaker:     Ms. Benita Raphaely
Anthropologist and Tour


Topic:      "Ten Things to Know about
                   the Swastika and Other
                   Indian Cultural Symbols


After making Aliyah from South Africa in 1970 as a marine biologist, Benita Raphaely’s only job option was in Eilat, so she decided to change direction and only dive for recreation. She obtained her Master of Public Health degree a few years later and then lectured and worked in the School of Public Health at the Hebrew University, in the fields of Health Behavior and Anthropology.


During that time, Benita was intimately involved with Ethiopian absorption. In 2013, she managed to combine her interests in history and anthropology when she became a certified guide and tour leader.


Since then, Benita has led Jewish heritage tours to Spain and Portugal, Greece and India. She makes a point of always introducing her groups to locals who can give them a literal and figurative taste of people’s customs and beliefs - aspects of culture not readily available on Google!


Two travel quotes which Benita likes are:


“Ones destination is never a place, but rather a new way of seeing things”.

Henry Miller


“All journeys have secret destinations of which the traveler is generally not aware”. Martin Buber.


Benita’s tours are not based on checklists or photo-ops but enable her groups to experience for themselves through the lenses of the places visited and the people met. Hopefully, it won’t be too long before all can travel again!
