Day 1 – Wednesday, March 18, 2015: The Journey Begins
Today, you will board your flight at Newark (NY City area) and head to Israel for the tour of a lifetime!
Day 2 – Thursday, March 19: Welcome to Israel!
At 8:00AM, we arrive in the Holy Land! Welcome to the Rebirthed Nation of Israel! Jeremiah, Isaiah and Ezekiel said that God would regather His people to this land, and now you are standing here!
Ron and Elana will meet you at at the airport and we’ll jump on our luxury, air-conditioned and Wi-Fi-equipped coach. (You will be able to share photos and thoughts with your friends and family in real-time!) You will meet your licensed (and very smart) tour guide. We begin the tour in Jaffa, a 4,000 year old port city, once the gateway to the land of Israel. This is the city where Peter had his amazing vision of the Gentiles entering into the New Covenant and where he raised Tabitha from the dead.
We’ll will make a short stop at a local Messianic outreach and hear testimony from our own associate Pastor Moti Cohen. Next we’ll visit the renovated Port of Tel Aviv and Ron and Elana will take you to one of their favorites restaurants for lunch right on the Mediterranean Coast.
We’ll marvel at the beautiful view of the Tel Aviv coastline as we visit one of those places that tourists never see—the Amazing Shfayim Cliffs overlooking the Mediterranean Sea. We’ll drive up the Coastal Shores and visit Caesarea, the most modern city when Yeshua was alive, and the site where the Holy Spirit first fell on the Gentiles, through the preaching of the Jewish evangelist, Simon Peter. If time permits, we‘ll take a walk on the beach at the ancient aqueduct.. Then, we’ll head to our hotel in Haifa for an awesome dinner.
Nighttime Option! For those who don’t want to sleep yet, Elana will lead a group to downtown Haifa.
Overnight: Haifa, Dan Panorama Hotel
Day 3 – Friday, March 20: From The Carmel to The Galilee
Enjoy the world-famous Israeli breakfast! We begin this day at the Museum of Secret Immigration (one of Ron’s favorite Museums), then, onto the Mt. Carmel rooftop where Elijah called down fire from heaven. From this point we’ll be able to see Armageddon. (It time permits, we’ll make a brief stop at Usafiya, a Druze village with great shopping!) On the way, we’ll visit Carmel Congregation, an on-fire group of Messianic Jews and Israeli Arabs!
Now we’ll head to the Mt. Of Beatitudes on the Sea of Galilee where Yeshua delivered the Sermon on the Mount. Next, Yeshua’s ministry base of operations, in Kfar Nachum (Capernaum). Here Yeshua did many miracles. We will see the home of Simon Peter and the ancient synagogue. We’ll then proceed to see the ancient boat dated to the time of Jesus (more exciting than it sounds—trust us!). Then, we’ll enjoy a Boat Ride across the Sea of Galilee! At sunset, a St. Peter’s Fish SHABBAT Dinner (Delicious!) at Ein Gev awaits us. Ron and Elana will recite the blessings over the candles, bread and wine.

Day 4 – Saturday, March 21: Explore The Golan
In late March, the Golan Heights will be in bloom! (Don’t forget your camera!) We’ll start the day in the Hula Valley, where we will visit the Hula Nature reserve. When the Jews returned to Israel in the 1800s, it was a malaria-filled swamp—now it is one of the most amazing places in Israel. For the active ones, there will be an 8K leisurely bike ride through the breathtaking reserve. For others, there will be golf carts. Then, we’ll head to the beautiful Tel Dan nature reserve for a short walk next to the Dan River and the Banias, where Peter made his confession in Matthew 16.
