Daily Itinerary
Day One – Friday, Jan 25th
Depart for the ancient Holy Land of Israel

Day Two – Saturday, Jan 26th (Sabbath Day in Israel)
Tel Aviv - Jaffa
Welcome to Israel! For 3,000 years on this small patch of land men have toiled and battled; prayed and worshiped. Listen and let the land of Israel tell you the stories of its past. Sitting on the edge of the Mediterranean, Jaffa still stands as one of the world’s oldest ports. Tradition claims that Jaffa was settled by Noah’s youngest son when the Flood receded; and ever since its founding, Located in one of the small alleyways, visit Simon the Tanner’s house that remains a monument to the wonderful revelation Peter the Apostle received to go and preach to all the world. Overnight in Natanya (D)

Day Three – Sunday, Jan 27th
Caesarea - Mt. Carmel – Megiddo- Nazareth
“And on the morrow, they entered into Caesarea…Cornelius thy prayer is heard.” Enter Caesarea, remains of a city founded by Herod, residence of Pontius Pilate and a prison for Paul. Sit in the well-preserved amphitheater overlooking the blue sea and hear the story of Paul’s conversion of the Centurion. The scenery begins to change to the beautiful green pastures and high rolling hills of the Jezreel Valley as we approach Mt Carmel where the prophet Elijah and the priests of Baal contested their faith. Not far away is Megiddo, the tragic site of ancient bloody battles where nations were won and lost. Upon these same tragic fields, the great and terrible last battle of Armageddon will be fought. Journey next to Nazareth, the quaint town where Mary lived when she was visited by an angel and it was revealed her special mission on each as the mother of Jesus Christ who also spent his childhood here and learned his earthly vocation as a carpenter and grew and waxed strong in spirit. Overnight in Galilee (B,D)

Day Four – Monday, Jan 28th
Mt. Tabor - En Herod Springs - Bet She’an - Jordan River
“And he lifted up his hands and blessed them…while he blessed them, he was carried up into heaven.” Mount Tabor is one of the mountains traditionally claimed to be the site of the transfiguration of Jesus Christ. You will thrill to the almost hair-raising taxi ride up the mountain, but once at the summit, you will feel the peace and calm of the surrounding valley. Travel to the ancient tel of Bet She’an, where 6,000 years of civilization seem to unfold among the ruins. It is believed to be the very Bet She’an of the Old Testament where the former King of Israel, Saul, was fastened to the city wall without his head by the conquering Philistines. As the road winds toward the Galilee, stop to visit the Yardenit Baptismal Site on the banks of the Jordan River. It is here that people from around the world, representing diverse denominations, still come to be baptized. We will have a private area to remember the sacred events that took place during Christ baptism with his cousin John. Overnight in Galileev(B,D)

Day Five – Tuesday, Jan 29th
Sea of Galilee – Capernaum – Tabgha - Mount of Beatitudes
Stand on the Mount of Beatitudes where Jesus preached the Sermon on the Mount. Visit Tabgha, site of the miracle of the loaves and fishes and Capernaum, where Jesus lived and recruited his first followers among the fishermen. This afternoon you will sail upon the Sea to view the area of Jesus Christ’s early ministry. As the wind carries your boat, note the halo of mountains that surrounds its shores. Overnight in Galilee. (B,D)

Day Six – Wednesday, Jan 30th
Jericho – Qumran – Masada - Dead Sea
Leaving the fertile valleys of the Galilee, we enter the strange and barren desert of the Dead Sea. Once the Biblical Lands of Moab and Edom, the Dead Sea basin has been a refuge to prophets, zealots and outcasts throughout time. Buried in the beige limestone bluffs, the ruins of Qumran still tell the story of the essences, a reclusive Jewish sect that buried the now famous Dead Sea Scrolls. Further south lies Ein Gedi, the oasis where David hid from King Saul. From the desert floor, ascend by cable car to the spectacular cliff-top fortress of Masada, where a community of 960 Jews preferred death at their own hands to the indignity of surrender to the overwhelming Roman forces. While at the Dead Sea, you cannot miss the opportunity to enjoy a dip in the buoyant waters and bathe in the wonderful medicinal mud! Even Cleopatra sent her slaves to retrieve this magical mud in order to preserve her legendary beauty. Overnight in Jericho. (B,D)

Day Seven – Thursday, Jan 31st
Western Wall - Dome of the Rock – The Old City - Room of the Last-Caiaphas House
This morning, we start our exploration into the beloved city of Jerusalem. The Western Wall is the most important site in all of Jewish civilization because these rough massive stones are all that is left of the great Second Temple. Above the wall is Mount Moriah where the Islamic shrine, the Dome of the Rock, is located. Entering the oldest quarter of Jerusalem, follow the winding alleys and crowded streets to the Pools of Bethesda. Discover the ancient city beneath the modern streets where the old paving stones are carved with Roman games. We will visit the Church of the Holy Sepulcher, erected over what some believe to be the site of the crucifixion. On to the old quarter of Jerusalem is the site believed to be the Room of the Last Supper. Devoid of gilded statues or ornate chapels, the quiet simplicity and elegance of this room helps one to focus on the words of Christ and the poignant last moments with his beloved disciples. Continue on to the House of Caiaphas, which owns the dark and sad dungeon that once imprisoned the Savior. To experience the cold dismal cells and feel the sorrow and grieving of such a place, brings understanding and gratitude to our hearts. Overnight in Jerusalem. (B,D)

Day Eight – Friday, Feb 1st
Israel Museum - Yad Veshem- Holy Land Model – Bethlehem & Shepherds’ Field
Discover the treasures of the Israel Museum, the site chosen to house the Dead Sea Scrolls. One of the most memorable pages of Jewish history unfolds as we visit Yad Veshem, the official memorial to the six million Jews who perished in the Holocaust in Europe. Music, bells and churches appropriately adorn the little town of Bethlehem for it was here that the Light of the World was given life. This afternoon we will see the Church of the Nativity and Shepherds Fields where they still tend their flocks on the fields overlooking Bethlehem just as they did over 2,000 years ago when the angel appeared bringing them glad tidings of great joy. Gathered on these fields, we sing the beloved hymns and listen to the wondrous story – a moment not to be forgotten. Overnight in Jerusalem. (B,D)

Day Nine – Saturday, Feb 2nd
Mt. of Olives - Garden of Gethsemane – Garden Tomb- BYU Jerusalem Center
The Garden of Gethsemane lies nestled on the slopes of the Mount of Olives. Feel the powerful spirit in the Garden as you envision the momentous events which took place at this sacred site. Today we will partake of church services at the remarkable BYU Jerusalem Center. The view from the full-length windows of the chapel reveals a breathtaking view of the Old City and the Dome of the Rock. This afternoon we will spend at the beautiful Garden Tomb. There is a limestone hill which many revere as Golgotha, the site of the crucifixion. Just around that hill is an old cemetery with an ancient tomb that once held the Savior’s mortal body and saw its glorious resurrection. There is a sign on the door of the tomb that says, “Do not look for Him here for He is raised”. You will never forget this moment in your life as you look for Him, not in the tomb but within your own life. Overnight in Jerusalem (B,D)

Day Ten – Sunday, Feb 3rd
Jerusalem/Jerusalem Davidson Center
Today we have the opportunity to see a virtual tour of the Second Temple and visit the southern temple steps, walk the rampart of the old city wall and visit the amazing Ophel Archeology Garden! After we tour these special ruins protected by the Davidson Center you will have the afternoon to yourself to explore the old city and bargain for those special treasures to take home to family and loved one! Overnight in Jerusalem. (B,D)

Day Eleven – Monday, 4th
Jerusalem-Tel Aviv- USA
Today is your Free Day to finish seeing all the beautiful sites in Jerusalem. We will have a wonderful farewell dinner on our way back to Tel Aviv tonight before we arrive back at the airport for our flight home. (B,D)
