Hello from our last day in Israel! It’s hard to believe the trip has come to an end. We came, we saw, we learned about who conquered. Israel is an amazing, beautiful country with an incredible, rich history. Israel is a complex and complicated nation with an undeniable influence on the modern world....

Jerusalem Has A Lot Going On

posted on 2018-02-26 at 7:49 pm

In the words of an exclamatory Yehuda, “Wow wow wee wah!” It’s been a day. Lot’s of sight-seeing, lots of history, lots to take in. While we saw an abundance of Jerusalem (by the end of the day, I think everyone was happy to come back to the hotel and let their feet take a rest) we really only...

I can’t believe we are already on day 8 of the trip. We have made our way to Jerusalem, which is such an amazing and unique city. As we drove along, we saw Orthodox Jews headed to work. Little children walking along the streets on their own (there has been no child abducted in Jerusalem for the past...

Hello everyone! We’re on the move. After spending four wonderful days in Galilee, we have started heading toward Jerusalem. We began the morning in Jesus’s hometown, Nazareth. The good old NTZR.

Hello everyone! Welcome to Day Five of the Israel blog. I can’t believe we are almost halfway through the trip - time has been flying and Yehuda is always keeping us moving fast so we can see all of the amazing sites Israel has to offer.

While I know those that visit Israel outside of the GTI tour group end up having a wonderful and moving experience, I’m not sure if it can truly compare to going with Yehuda. [Yeh-who-da] is the man of the hour. Tour guide extraordinaire, he is what sets this trip a part from the rest. If Terry,...

  Hello friends! I am writing to you from the bumpy roads of Israel’s I-95 (N? S? Don’t tell anyone on the trip but I have little to no sense of direction and little to no sense of where we seem to be going. At almost any time.) I’m just along for the ride and trust Terry and Laura to...

We visited the massive Masada fortress built by Herod the Great and we floated in the Dead Sea. Unlike my own personal expectations, the camel...
