HERITAGE FLORIDA JEWISH NEWS, JANUARY 25, 2019 PAGE 11A to visit" ,J in y want to By Moshe Phillips Are you or a family member planning to go on Birth- right in 2019? Are you looking for something more than the average "Israel Experience?" Here are some ideas on what to see if you chose to extend your trip and your mind. Don't give in to the critics of Israel who want you to leave Birth- right and see the Palestinian point of view when you know almost nothing about the Jewish struggle to free Israel from British control in the first place. Birthright may take you to the Kotel (Western Wall), the Sea of Galilee, the Yad Vashem Holocaust Memorial, and/or Masada and those are all worthwhile but there are other places to visit that will help you to understand the amazing history of the pio- neers who fought the battles that allowed the modern State of Israel to be declared. Below is a list of eight places to visit in Israel that will help you to develop a more accurate picture of the struggle to build the Jewish State. Acre Prison Acre Prison is where Zion- ist leader Ze'ev Jabotinsky and his comrades were im- prisoned by the British in 1920 for defending Jewish neighborhoods in Jerusalem from Arab rioters. Later the British imprisoned Irgun and Stern Group underground fighters there. Several Zionist , " er s were executed there by the British. The prison is perhaps best known for the 1947 escape of dozens of fighters during an under- ground raid that was depicted in Leon Uris's novel "Exo- dus" and the 1960 movie. For more on Acre Prison go to http://www.akko.orgil/en/ Oid-Acre-The-Underground- Prisoners-Museum. Museum of the Under- ground Prisoners Another prison where the British held Irgun and LEHI soldiers was Jerusalem's Central Prison in the Russian Compound. The museum there has significant exhibits that relate the stories of the heroes of the undergrounds. For more information go to http://allaboutjerusalem. corn/museum/museum-un- derground-prisoner. Etzel Museum The Irgun was also known as the Etzel. This museum in Tel Aviv details the history the Irgun and the movement's impact on the British decision to leave Eretz Israel as well as the group's combat role in the War of Independence. For more information go to https://www.jewishvirtu- LEHI Museum The LEHI underground launched a campaign to force the British to leave Eretz Israel. Its founder Yair (Avraham) Stern had been a leader in the Irgun and formed the LEHI in order to fight the British at all costs. The LEHI museum is housed in the building where Stern was assassinated by the Brit- ish in 1942. For more about the museum go to https:// museum-beit-yair-56971. Menachem Begin Heri- tage Center To better understand this founding father of Israel and leader of the Irgun there is simply no better place to visit than the Menachem Begin Heritage Center in Jerusalem. For more about the cen- ter go to the center's web- site: https://www.begincenter. Jabotlnsky Institute Ze'ev Jabotinsky was the Zionist leader that created a bold, new vision for Zionism after the death of Herzl The Jabotinsky Institute in Tel Aviv houses a museum dedi- cated to teaching about him (see museum/about-the-muse- um/) and a intriguing special exhibit that spotlights the Af Al Pi illegal effort that rescued Jews from Nazi Europe and brought them Eretz Israel. Tel Chai Tel Chai was a settlement in the Galilee that was the site of a battle against Arab raiders in 1920. The Zionist hero Joseph Trumpeldor and seven other valiant defenders died in the defense of Tel Chai against a much larger force. Trumpeldor had been instru- mental in forming Jewish Legion during World Var One. Jabotinsky named hs Betar movement after Trunpledor. A large statue of a licn sits at the sight as does a nuseum at kibbutz Kfar Gilad. Rosh Pina Shlomo Ben Yosef is buried in Rosh Pina. Rosh Pina was an early Zionist settlement. In 1938 in response to attacks on Jews by Arab terrorists, Ben Yosef, a member of Betar and the Irgun, along with two companions organized a reprisal attack. Tl ey were subsequently arre;ted by the British. Ben Yosef was executed by the British at Acre prison.
