There are very few safe spaces for Jews to wrestle with the right and wrong of Zionism without the overlay of antisemitism that magnifies internalized self-hatred and intergenerational trauma. This tour will guide participants through a carefully moderated, mutually respectful exploration of the historical, cultural and spiritual link of the Jewish people to Israel, as well as the Palestinian people’s sense of belonging to the land, and will confront the tragedy of the ongoing Israeli state’s oppression of the people of Palestine. All those who come from a place of human heartbreak, not demonization, are welcome.

*Pricing based on double room occupancy (single room supplement $795) for a minimum of 18 travelers in the group. Final price to be determined based on total number of travelers in the group from $4,050 (12 persons in the group) to $3,450 (21 persons in the group).

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.
