of Justice & Peace in a Dry & Weary Land”

A Pilgrimage to Palestine/Israel
MAY 15-31, 2019

Colgate Rochester Crozer Divinity School announces the fourth study pilgrimage to walk where Jesus walked and see what Jesus saw: a land and God’s peoples living with the realities of military occupation in the 21st century as in the 1st century.

The focus of the 2019 pilgrimage will be water and wilderness—engaged biblically, theologically, geopolitically. We will traverse a portion of the Great Rift Valley, beginning in the heights of the Golan, with its abundant springs of water, and following the Jordan River Valley from its source to the alarmingly shrinking Dead Sea and into the wilderness of the Negev. Our itinerary will include sites in the Galilee, on the northern West Bank of the Jordan, in the wilderness of Judea, around Jerusalem, Bethlehem, Hebron, as well as in the Golan and the Negev.

Cost: Approximately $5750. Please note this is all-inclusive (air fare, full-board lodging, entry fees, guides, ground transport, tips, and occasionals). Accommodation will be simple, safe, and clean; food will be delicious and abundant. Rooms will be double occupation; for those who do not wish to share a room, there will be a $750/person single supplement.

NOTE: This is a study pilgrimage. There will be a lot of walking, often in hilly or on uneven terrain. Temperatures at this time of year can vary, but could be in the upper 80s and 90s. Please consider these factors in relation to your own physical stamina and sturdiness.
