Dates of Trip
June 3-13, 2019
We will depart from New York together on Monday, June 3, and arrive in Tel Aviv, Israel, on Tuesday, June 4. We will depart Tel Aviv on Wednesday, June 12, and arrive back in New York on Thursday, June 13. The airport we will be using has not been determined yet.
The total price will vary based on airline prices and the final number of participants we have on the trip. The prices are expected to be within the following range:
Shared hotel accommodations: $3,200-3,400 per person.
(We will assist singles in finding a roommate for the trip.)
Single hotel accommodation: $3,900-4,100 per person.
What Is Included
An educational tour of this nature is physically demanding. It requires the health and stamina to walk (and sometimes climb) on rugged, rocky terrain for multiple hours each day in hot weather conditions. Each person should consider whether or not he or she is physically fit enough to participate. We recommend that individuals with serious health conditions, pregnant women and children under 13 not participate in this trip. Participants should also understand that the flight to Israel is approximately 10½ hours.
The itinerary will be rigorous. Since this will be the only trip some will ever make to Israel, we want to expose participants to as much as we can. In order to visit all of these sites, we have to pack our days full with travel and touring. A detailed itinerary will be released to participants when it is finalized. Here are some of the locations we plan to visit:
Sabbath and Pentecost
We will observe the Sabbath and Pentecost in the city of Jerusalem. On Sabbath morning we will visit the Mount of Olives, Garden of Gethsemane and the Garden Tomb. We will probably have a short Bible study at one or two of these sites and then share lunch together. Services will be in the afternoon.
On Pentecost, we will hold a normal double service at our Jerusalem hotel.
