Global Leader in Socially Conscious Travel.

This is a private tour for the Center for Swedenborgian Studies. Please email the tour group leader, Rebecca Esterson ([email protected]), for pre-approval prior to registering for the tour.  

Tour Overview:

Join the Center for Swedenborgian Studies for a chance-of-a-lifetime tour of Israel and Palestine. The tour is designed in part to be educational, focusing on the history of the region from the perspectives of Palestinians and Israelis. This will be done by connecting with the people who live there and hearing their stories. We will also visit important sites of Christian pilgrimage and make time for reflection, prayer, and meditation in the tradition of Swedenborgian spirituality in the many sacred sites of Jerusalem, the Galilee, and the Judean desert.

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.
