Pilgrimage of Solidarity to Israel/Palestine
November 18 to 30
|Pilgrimage of Solidarity to Israel/Palestine Come join the Pilgrimage of Solidarity from November 18-30 to learn about the inspiring work Palestinians and Israelis are doing for peace and justice and what we can do to be in solidarity with them! The first 5 days of the program we will participate in the international conference organized by Sabeel, the Centre for Ecumenical Liberation Theology. Based in Jerusalem you will have the chance to listen to high-profile speakers, go on field trips to local groups and projects around Bethlehem and Hebron, participate in worship and bible study and engage in group discussions with people from around the world. We will visit people and places not covered during the conference and reflect on our experiences along the way. Imagine strolling the ancient streets of Nazareth and the shores of the Sea of Galilee!
Participants can expect to learn, develop deep bonds with their fellow pilgrims, and experience a life transforming experience through sharing in the daily lives of our host community. Whether you know a lot or very little about Israel/Palestine, this special region known as the Holy Land has a lot to teach us!
“Being in that ancient territory helped me get a sense of how the geography, topography, history and gospels come together. It was an educational, fascinating and disturbing experience. Definitely worthwhile and gave me an authentic sense of what’s going on there.”
