FOSNA NorCal Group Trip, 8th Intl Conference

Conference Start Date: 
Saturday, February 19, 2011 to Tuesday, March 8, 2011

Friends of Sabeel—Northern California – FOSNA NorCal

Tree of Life Journey

Join us on a journey to the Occupied Palestinian Territories

FOSNA NorCal is sponsoring a group trip for the 8th International Sabeel Conference in Bethlehem February 23 through 28 with an added itinerary before and after the conference. The conference includes speakers, workshops and panels with Palestinian, American and Israeli scholars and activists as well as tours of West Bank sites – from refugee camps to checkpoints, settlements and the Wall.

Our group will travel before and after the conference, meeting with Israeli and Palestinian peace activists, villagers, Bedouins, Jerusalemites and politicians. We will visit sites from the Galilee in the north to the Negev in the south and stop at pilgrimage locations sacred to all faiths. Our guides are experienced and knowledgeable, familiar with the history of the region, its language and culture and the current situation.

The group will travel together from February 19 through March 8, and some of us will extend our journey into Egypt or Jordan. We will stay in moderately priced but comfortable accommodations.

Space is limited to 35 participants, and we are already two thirds full. If you are interested in joining us, please contact Sabeel-Tree of Life Journey to Palestine/Israel by calling 510-502-3359, writing to 1700 Shattuck Ave. # 314, Berkeley CA 94709 or sending email to norcal.sabeel@comcast.net.
