We will start our touring day with a visit the Mount of Olives for a breathtaking view of the city of Jerusalem. This is the spot where Jesus was wiping over the faith of Jerusalem. From here we will descend to the Garden of Gethsemane and visit the Church of the Agony.


We'll then proceed to Mount Zion to visit the Upper Room and the traditional Tomb of King David. This afternoon we visit the Southern Wall excavations.

This southern side of The Temple was the main entrance for the common folk, whereas the Priests and Levites had their own entrance from the higher eastern side. Parts of the giant stairs, which led to the Temple Mount from the courtyard have been unearthed along with the purification pools.


From here Jesus entered the Temple Mount and drove out the vendors and money changers who were exploiting the people. It is also likely that this is the place that Peter stood and preached and where thousands were saved and baptized on the Day of Pentecost.

From here we will trace the footsteps of Jesus in His last day, visiting on the way the Pool of Bethesda, Stephen's Gate and St. Ann's Church and on to the Via Dolorosa, the way of the agony and the Stations of the Cross. We are reminded of His way of suffering along with a visit to the Church of the Holy Sepulcher.

Here at the very place where King David composed his Psalms and where the Holy Spirit was poured upon the early believers (Acts 2).

Our visits today include the northern border of Israel. Here we will visit with members of one of the kibbutzim that are on the front line and meet with soldiers that are stationed at the border.

This border crossing was fought for and changed hands a number of times between the Asad army and the Syrian rebels. This place was also the site of the most heroic fight between the IDF and the Syrian army during the Yom Kippur war. At Marom Golan and the Valley o Tears we will view the film Oz 77 about the Yom Kippur War, and discuss the security issues that still persist 45 years since that war.

We will start our day with a visit the little town of Cana where Jesus turned the water into wine at the wedding feast, ready to renew your wedding vow here? We will have just the right pastor at hand...


We continue to Nazareth to visit the Church of the Annunciation and one of the world's most panoramic sites, a view of the entire city of Nazareth, the valley of Armageddon, Mount Tabor of the transfiguration and the Gilboa range. This great vista is from the top of Mt. Precipice - the cliff where Jesus was chased away and was about to be thrown to his death by the worshipers at the synagogue. From here we will drive trough the Valley of Sharon to Latrun - IDF Armored Division Center..

Two thousand and five hundred years ago, as Jerusalem was rebuilt by those who returned from exile, Nehemiah said: "From that day on, half of my men did the work, while the other half were equipped with spears, shields, bows and armor. The officers posted themselves behind all the people of Judah who were building the wall. Those who carried materials did their work with one hand and held a weapon in the other, and each of the builders wore his sword at his side as he worked." (Nehemiah 4:16-19).


In accordance with biblical prophesies, Israel was reborn and just as in the days of Nehemiah, since her rebirth in 1948, Israel is in a continuous struggle for survival. More now, than ever before, Jewish soldiers, young Israeli, boys and girls, the "Shields of David” are the defenders of God's Land. To honor them, our special program today is in Latrun - the official Israel Defense Force Commemoration Center and armament display. Latrun is the fortress that was strategically built on Israel's main crossroads and throughout history protected the Holy City of Jerusalem.


The program here will feature a full army ceremony including laying a wreath at the "Wall of Names" in honor of the fallen soldiers and pay tribute to the living. Here we will mingle with the young soldiers; we will be briefed by experts who will give us the opportunity to gain a better understanding and insight into the region's conflict. Here we will pray for the young hero's of Israel - What a place to pledge our support and solidarity with their/our Godly plight. This is the place to pledge our support and solidarity with Israel.



We will end our day at the beautiful waterfront and the beaches of Tel Aviv!
