Jonathan Z. Maltzman, the rabbi of Kol Shalom in Rockville, Maryland, is the spiritual leader of the Conservative congregation. In this role, Jonathan Z. Maltzman leads services, supervises staff, teaches classes, and counsels individuals and couples. Rabbi Maltzman has also taken several groups from his congregation on trips to Israel.

The Israel National Trail has become a pilgrimage for many. The trail stretches 620 miles from the southern tip of Israel in Eilat all the way to Dan, near the Lebanese border in the north.

People marking significant milestones often embark on a trek on the Israel National Trail to experience landscapes that are featured prominently in Christian and Jewish history, including Jerusalem, the Sea of Galilee, and the Jordan River. Without fail, hikers are struck by the impressive beauty of the Middle Eastern landscape. The Society for the Protection of Nature in Israel maintains the trail and offers hikers the option of collecting stamps at significant stopping points along the trail.
