Ursuline College Alumni & Friends 10-Day Christian Heritage Tour of the Holy Land
Watch as Christianity's backdrops come to light. Follow in the footsteps of Jesus of Nazareth and his Apostles as you explore the Christian heritage of Israel. From Jesus' birthplace in Bethlehem to his crucifixion and resurrection in the Holy City of Jerusalem, explore the stories and scenes that set the foundation for an entire faith.
We'll sail across the Sea of Galilee in a wooden boat, visit the Mount of the Beatitudes, drive up to the Mount of Olives and the Garden of Gethsemane. At the Israel Museum, we'll walk through collections of century-old artifacts including the Dead Sea Scrolls, and then take a guided walk through an accurately detailed model of Biblical Jerusalem.
