Who Should Come?

Everyone! We encourage pastors, students, businessmen and women, elders and families to come!

Participants should come prepared for lots of walking, as you will get to see and experience the land first hand and set your feet in the places where the men and women of the Bible stood.

Accomodations

Lodging will be on Har Bracha (Mount of Blessing), at the HaYovel volunteer campus. Rooms are dormitory style, with campground-style bathrooms, showers, and laundromat.

Single men and women will be housed in dorms with several people to each room on cots (similar to bunk beds). Couples and families will receive their own room with a mattress or bed, and families will receive 1-2 rooms, depending on family size. Linens are provided! Towels, soap and shampoo, and other amenities are not provided – you will need to bring your own.

All meals (unless otherwise mentioned in the itinerary) will be at the HaYovel campus, and prepared by HaYovel’s 5-star chef team. Each Shabbat (sabbath) will include a traditional Jewish sabbath meal. All food is biblically clean, but not certified kosher.
