The Holy Land from a Woman’s Perspective Tour
Tuesday, September 24, 2019 to Friday, October 4, 2019
Get a different view of the Holy Land as you hear the stories and visit significant sites connected to women in the Bible such as Deborah, Mary the mother of Jesus, and Mary Magdalene. Reflect on the life of Jesus in Nazareth, Jerusalem, Bethlehem, on the Sea of Galilee and many other places where he lived and taught. Visit with staff from NGOs working for peace. Also enjoy the natural beauty of the land at the Banias Nature Reserve and the oasis of En Gedi. On this tour you will meet the “Stones” that tell the stories and form the basis of our faith. You will also meet the “Living Stones”, the people who live in the Holy Land today–Jewish Israelis, Palestinian Christians and Muslims.
