Short Description

Jews, Muslims and Christians all trace their roots back to a man of faith who heard God’s call, who journeyed from home in confidence that unnamed-1God had a mission for him and whose faithfulness to that mission still impacts the world today. Join a group Abraham’s descendants – Jews, Muslims and Christians – as they travel to the land called holy by all his descendants. There we will dialogue with and learn from leaders of all three religions who are working for peace. Like Abraham, God is calling us to journey from home and embrace a mission – a mission of interfaith peace that our communities, society and world desperately needs us to embrace. Like our spiritual ancestor Abraham, we too can change the world.

Private tours give you the undivided attention of a guide, and often involve special access to sites and unique experiences not available to larger groups. This is a great option for families, couples, and small friend groups. Expect to pay a bit more for the extra service.
