Deadline to register December 20, 2021

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.
