Our Programs

Travel & Encounter focuses on personal and transformative experiences in the Holy Land. Over the course of nearly twenty years, we have organized programs for individuals, families, religious, political, educational, and civil groups from almost every background spanning the globe. Our emphasis is on a balance of exploration of the people, places, and faiths of the Holy Land while bearing witness to the present reality of perpetual violence that has global implications.

We design our travel programs to be connected with our organizational mission and vision. We do not engage in “conflict tourism” but rather use the time and resources we are given to encourage transcendence of the physical, ideological, and psychological barriers that have been placed between peoples by connecting visitors with the visited across the Holy Land.
