AMERICANS FOR PEACE NOW

Global Leader in Socially Conscious Travel.

PILGRIMS AND PEACEMAKERS TOUR​

Americans for Peace Now (APN) is known for its pertinent and engaging tours to Israel and Palestine, and neighboring countries. After more than two decades of producing our tours in-house, this year we are delighted to partner with MEJDI Tours to enhance the tour experience.

Our 2022 tour will combine the traditional elements – meetings with Israeli political and civil society leaders, visits to West Bank settlements and to Palestinian towns and villages, and updates from our colleagues at Shalom Achshav – with new, exciting programming that takes advantage of MEJDI’s expertise.          

In addition to meeting with Israeli and Palestinian elected leaders and other officials at the Knesset and in Ramallah, we will meet with young Palestinians in East Jerusalem, visit hotspots such as Sheikh Jarrah and Silwan, and take a dual-narrative tour with an Israeli and a Palestinian who will lay out conflicting narratives, and demonstrate the challenges and opportunities of peaceful coexistence. 

For the first time, we will also add a trip to Morocco, which recently established diplomatic relations with Israel and wishes to play a constructive role in advancing Israeli-Palestinian peace. We will meet with senior officials there and explore the many wonders of this country.

We will be staying at the American Colony, East Jerusalem’s most famous and picturesque hotel, and spend two nights at a beachside Tel Aviv hotel. Our Morocco tour will include stops in Marrakech, Casablanca, and Rabat.

We hope you will join us for a unique travel experience – one that brings together the sights and sounds of Israel-Palestine alongside important and meaningful conversations about the political, social and cultural questions surrounding the quest for peace.

Our trained guide-facilitators will help open a conversation, answer difficult questions, model friendship through respectful dialogue and disagreement, and give travelers an opportunity to encounter new voices and perspectives.

All the trips we take are educational and geared towards cultural immersion, and that’s true of MEJDI. But none are so first hand and intentionally personal as the MEJDI tour guides are.

You come away hopeful because the tour guides can have such different backgrounds and experiences and opinions and still respect each other, And, they introduce you to groups that are working to spread that throughout the world.
