Our “Special Experiences” are additions for you to experience life in Israel that will help deepen your connection and understanding of the Land of Israel. Consider adding these additions to the tour of your choice.
Celebration of Shabbat
The Shabbat is one of the Jewish people’s greatest joys and gifts as it is the sign of the eternal covenant. And so as covenanted people we rejoice in blessing one another and God on this day. Our Shabbat celebration is accompanied with Hebrew Worship led by Messianic musicians and the joy of the community dancing hand in hand for all who wish to do so—not to mention partaking in some of the most delectable delights!
Hebrew Music Evening
Meet our talented Hebrew musicians and enjoy an evening of songs and music….maybe even DANCE!
Enjoy a Biblical Harp*
We provide a Davidic Harp to be shared by the participants. This ten-string Harari Harp is the type most likely used by David, the shepherd, while with his flocks in the wilderness. He used it to accompany many of the biblical psalms we cherish even today. As a personal harp, pressed against the ear and heart, the music is felt internally and is a tool to awaken within even the most musically challenged that which David called “a new song”, that is, the song of one’s life responding back to the Creator.
*Depending upon availability.
Passover Seder Meal*
Passover is The Celebration of Freedom! Freedom was given to Israel at a great cost, and is greatly treasured. In our ancient tradition we preserve the honorable method of expressing gratitude for this gift by teaching ourselves and our next generation how to live in freedom and bring freedom to others.
*If not traveling during Passover season, we will be happy to give a demonstration to all who want to experience it.
Plant Trees in the Wilderness*
60 years ago the land of Israel was still in the process of being revived by the Jewish people after being a desolated wasteland for millennia. At that time the arid land was marked by 200mm of annual rainfall, north of the city of Be’er Sheva in the southern part of Israel. Today Israel plants more trees per capita than any other country in the world and has developed the most technologically advanced agriculture to survive even the harshest of climates, producing high quality fruits and vegetables, often exported to Europe. The these accomplishments have resulted in the pushing back of the southern desert so that the arid line of 200mm of annual rainfall is now south of Be’er Sheva.
This reminds one of the biblical prophesy that the desert will blossom! In our tours and programs we can provide for people to participate in the meaningful and fun activity of planting trees in a wilderness town. The type of trees we provide are young fruit trees so that the poor people of the town will be able to take freely, pomegranates, figs, apples, clementines, peaches, plums, and almonds to eat in season as the trees mature. In this way, not only do you enjoy a special activity, but you also give back to the Land more life thereby blessing its inhabitants.
