Holy Land

Peacebuilding in the Holy Land

Bellevue Presbyterian Church & University Presbyterian Church

Trip dates: October 15 – 22, 2022

Extension dates: Oct. 23 – 25, 2022

Many of us aspire to travel to the Holy Land. We want to see the places we read about in the Bible.

But the Holy Land is more than just the stirring backdrop of Jewish, Christian, and Moslem faiths.

It’s also a land of heartbreaking hostilities. Decades of strife between Israelis and Palestinians continue to rage. The Biblical imperative for justice, reconciliation, and forgiveness is as much in need there today as it was 2,000 years ago.

You’re invited to join an eye-opening trip to the Holy Land this October where you’ll have an opportunity to not only tour the celebrated holy sites but dig deeper into the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. We’ll hear from Israeli, Jewish, and Palestinian guides, religious leaders, and peacemakers. We’ll discuss religious, political, economic, and justice issues facing the region. Moreover, we’ll wrestle with the question of how we can engage and respond to the ongoing turmoil.

The tour is organized through our mission partner Churches for Middle East Peace (CMEP) and MEJDI Tours. See:
