Global Leader in Socially Conscious Travel.

THE DALLES UCC CONGREGATIONAL TOUR OF ISRAEL & THE WEST BANK

The purpose of this trip is twofold: To walk in the literal footsteps of Jesus as we visit historical sites and immerse ourselves in our faith history, and to walk the spiritual path of Christ as we learn of peacemaking in this beautiful part of the world that is sacred to so many.

We are not choosing sides in a conflict; we are choosing peace with justice for all. May it be a blessing to us and all we meet on the journey.

Check out the detailed tour itinerary (also located at the bottom of this page).

Visit all the must see sites, while being guided , by an Israeli and a Palestinian, in an immersive travel experience that takes you behind the doors of mosques, churches, and synagogues, through the halls of Palestinian and Israeli government, into active dig sites, and into the homes of Arab, Jewish, and Druze locals.

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.
