Rodfei Shalom (Pursuers of Peace) Tour of Israel and the West Bank
February 18 to February 27, 2020
Deadline to register October 18, 2019
Our ten day tour will expose participants to both Jewish and Palestinian narratives about the Mideast conflict through direct contact with people (Jews and Arabs) and places — both within Green Line Israel, and on the West Bank. We will also meet with and learn from inspiring people who are trying to bridge the gaps and promote coexistence through dialogue and joint projects.
This is not a typical Israel tour. Participants will likely be exposed at times to viewpoints and perspectives which are new to them, or with which they disagree. Participants will have the opportunity to raise questions and to process what they’ve heard and experienced, both the hard parts and the inspiring parts. Join Rabbi Elkin and other members of the Narayever community for this unique tour.

Check out a four minute TED talk by the founder of MEJDI in which he outlines the history and philosophy behind the company.
