Here’s some of what you can look forward to in this whirlwind experience:

  • Walk through the ancient cobbled streets of Jerusalem’s Old City
  • Experience the vibrant, cosmopolitan city of Tel Aviv and explore the diversity of Jaffa, a mix of faiths and cultures and a blend of history and modernity
  • Visit Ramallah, the current main city of Palestine’s government, economy and social and cultural life
  • Come face-to-face with some of the most pressing social issues facing Israel today and meet leading Israeli and Palestinian social activists
  • Float in the dead sea, hike in the north!
  • See first-hand the realities of the Israel-Palestine conflict in 2019

And so much more!
