Join UPPC on a unique pilgrimage to the Holy Land exploring the Christian faith in the Israeli-Palestinian context.
On this delegation, we will hear from a wide spectrum of voices across Israeli and Palestinian society. We will visit ancient holy sites as well as experience the vastly different realities of Jewish, Christian, and Muslim communities in the midst of a conflict zone, and how those differences present both opportunities and obstacles for peacemaking. In coordination with your group leaders we are also able create service opportunities alongside Israeli and Palestinian counterparts, giving participants an opportunity to build new relationships and experience the deep faith and vibrant cultures of the people in the Holy Land.
Meet with Palestinian Citizens of Israel
Jordan Extension - Per Person in Double
Take the opportunity to visit nearby Jordan and one of the seven wonders of the world at Petra. We will transfer to the Jordan border crossing by bus, and then make our way to Wadi Musa in Jordan. The next day we will visit Petra with a short ride on camel back through the desert and end with some bedouin hospitality in the desert.
Finally we will make our way back towards Israel, but first we will make a few stops at Mt Nebo and a refugee camp run by a partner organization for Palestinians, Syrians and Iraqis to learn about how the region's instability has affected all these nations as well as the challenges faces by Jordan as the host country.
We will spend the last night back in Jaffa-Tel Aviv on January 27th.
