Shalom from Jerusalem. After 16 months and multiple lockdowns, the nation of Israel is beginning finally to emerge from COVID-19. Once again Israelis can visit restaurants, cafes and shops while also enjoying musical events and the theater.

Importantly for Shoresh Study Tours, the Ministry of Tourism has begun programs that will allow tourist groups from overseas to visit the Holy Land again. Shoresh anticipates that by this fall, tourism will resume in Israel. (We expect that entry to Israel will only be allowed for persons who are fully vaccinated or have recovered from COVID.)
Soon visitors will be walking at the Mount of Beatitudes and Capernaum in the Galilee, Masada and Ein Gedi near the Dead Sea, and the Temple Mount and the Garden Tomb in Jerusalem. Shoresh has had to pause its work for the past 16 months, so we are eager to resume working with you to plan tours for the fall of this year, as well as for a busy 2022 and 2023.
Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to learn how you can join an existing tour or how you can plan to bring a group from your church on a tour that will open your eyes and heart to the Jewish roots of our Christian faith. Don’t miss out on your opportunity to visit the Holy Land soon.
