Pastor Jeff has worked with them in New Orleans and has great things to say about their organization.  Our dates are Sunday, April 27 to Saturday, May 3.  We have space for 25 participants.

Interfaith Trip to Holy Land in 2014: Latest News

Join us for this transformative interfaith trip to the Holy Land in Fall 2014.  Along with members from Temple Beth David and United Methodist Church of Cheshire, we will tour Israel's holy and historic sites that are central to our Christian and Jewish faiths, and be inspired by our mutual witness of faith.  The dates are October 22 - November 4, 2014.  Our itinerary is available upon request, as are information and registration forms.  Including airfare, housing, land transportation, all tours, numerous provided meals, and all taxes, the cost per person for a group of thirty travelers/pilgrims is approximately $3,600.  This is a superb price for all that will be covered.  The professional tour group leading our 2014 trip was the one that Rabbi Josh selected for his last two trips to Israel, and they garnered excellent reviews.  Pastor Jeff is happy to answer any questions.  Our first informational meeting on January 30 was well attended; and we are happy to schedule another should there be interest.
