Holy Land Trips

The Holy Land is central to all of the Abrahamic Faiths. The biblical narrative unfolded in this land over thousands of years. And many Christians, Jews, and Muslims are drawn to the land as a pilgrimage of sorts.

We have called our trips “Not Your Grandmother’s Holy Land Tour” for several reasons:

  • The tour is led by Brian Newman (from a Jewish background) and Elias Nawawieh (from a Palestinian family in Bethlehem);
  • We focus on how the person and life of Jesus intersects both the Israeli and Palestinian worlds of the 21st century;
  • We seek to provide a holistic perspective on the biblical accounts as well as life in Israel and the West Bank today;
  • We limit the group to 25 people and offer a more personalized group experience.

The annual tour is in November each year. We operate it in partnership with Good Shepherd Travel.
