Israel Tour 2008
Isra'el Trip March - April, 2008!
We have exciting news, next March-April, (2008) we will be leading a Messianic Tour to the Holy Land. This tour will last for 10 incredible days and will include 8 days in the Land of Promise.
Imagine touching the pavement where our Master walked, sitting on the steps our Master climbed, or riding a boat on the sea of Galilee.
We will visit Galilee, Nazareth, Jerusalem, Qumran, and the Dead Sea. Each day we will have teachings at special locations and nightly we will have a short time of teaching and fellowship as we reflect on the days events.
Current costs are expected to only be around $2,400-$2,500 each, which includes all airfare from Atlanta, 4 star hotels, private transportation, visas, admission to all sites, tour guide, and 2 meals per day. The only additional expenses you will be responsible for are: your passport (if you don't already have one), 1 lunch per day (less than $10), $6 in tips per person per day for the driver, guide, hotel, etc. and any items you purchase. Congregational Members will receive a special member discount for this trip, see Rabbi or Rebbitzen for details. A small deposit ($100 per person) will need to be collected within the next 4 weeks (by April 30th) to reserve your spot. For those needing a passport, you will need to apply for this within the next month or two. We will provide assistance with paperwork as needed. In September we will need to collect an additional deposit. This trip requires a minimum 15 persons to make the above price.
Special Egypt Extension:
(the Egypt extension is $400 and requires 10 people)
Stay 3 more days and travel to Egypt. You will cross the Sinai, go through the Suez Canal, and end in Cairo where you will see the pyramids and the Egyptian Museum. (See above for more details)
This is truly an event of a Lifetime, and will make the Scriptures come alive like nothing else can.
Why a Messianic tour vs a Church tour?
Simply this, we will bypass, or spend little time at the "traditional" locations such as the Via Dela Rosa and Church of the Holy Sepulcher, instead spending the majority of our time at the locations of the events seen in Scripture. All teaching will be from a Messianic prospective and will emphasis the cultural and historical context of the events as they unfolded in our Messiah's earthly ministry.
We currently have 24 people who have expressed a strong desire to go. Let us know if you would like to be part of this opportunity of a lifetime.
