Description

A trip to Israel should be a rite of passage for every Christian. There is no substitute for walking the land where Jesus walked and traversing the paths of the patriarchs, kings, prophets, and the first disciples. The origins of both ancient Biblical faith and of a present-day nation, rich with culture, diversity, beauty, and challenges, are in Israel. The land and the people of Israel have a story to tell. By coming to Israel, you make Israel’s story part of your own.

  • We are also saddened to be unable to accept International passports (outside of the United States) at this time. This is due to Israel's current COVID-19 policy that all tour groups entering Israel be of the same nationality. We look forward to being able to accept international students again and hope the policy will change soon.

    • Please note that Moderna and Pfizer vaccines are preferred, Johnson & Johnson vaccine recipients may encounter prolonged isolation periods. 
    • A third vaccination shot will also be required if initial inoculation occurred more than 6 months before trip departure. (6 months meaning from the second dose administration to trip departure day.)
