With the war in Gaza and hostilities elsewhere in Israel and Palestine continuing, planning a trip to Israel holds great uncertainty. And yet, we must plan now in order to have the opportunity to travel in November.

Engaging with Israel today is challenging. The political situation is disturbing, as democratic values and systems are at risk – as they are in the U.S. and elsewhere. And yet Israel – both historically and today – is intricately entwined with Judaism, and can stir the heart in beautiful and complex ways.

Join us as we will explore these complexities through our site visits, nature visits, community service and meetings with NGOs, academics, politicians, Israelis from many communities, with the help of a tour operator co-owned and run by an American Jewish and Palestinian Israeli peace builder/travel entrepreneurs.

Dates: Nov 15 -24, 2024

Cost: Approximately $4000 + airfare. Check out the website even if cost may be a barrier – we want to hear from you!

We’re aiming for a group size of 25-40 (the price drops if more people join).

Registration Deadline: August 16

Travelers from the 2023 postponed tour should email [email protected] to confirm their participation.
