Tour Options for Visiting Israel/Palestine:

You may want to visit Israel/Palestine but are uncertain how to go about it. It may be too complicated to travel alone or even put together a tour for your friends or your church members. There are, however, viable tour options available for individuals or couples or a few interested parties to take advantage of and join in.

We want to encourage you to check out the following websites and “Go and See” and then “Come and Tell” others about your experiences there.  You can trust that any of the tours we recommend will be professionally led and will take you to a wide variety of sites in both Israel and the West Bank; you will meet both Palestinians and Israelis who are seeking Peace with Justice – something we are all working towards.

    Mission Statement

    Interfaith Peace-Builders fosters a network of informed and active individuals who understand the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and the United States’ political, military, and economic role in it. To build and nurture such a network, we lead delegations of people from diverse backgrounds to Israel/Palestine. These delegations emphasize listening to and learning from those immersed in the reality of the conflict, and advancing the work of Israelis and Palestinians committed to nonviolent struggle and peace with justice. We seek to empower delegates to educate their local communities and the media, counter unfair or inaccurate stereotypes, and advocate for a more just US foreign policy that:

    • actively promotes civil, political and human rights
    • affirms political self-determination for Palestinians and Israelis
    • fosters economic and environmental sustainability in the region
    • supports a diplomatic resolution to the conflict rather than one imposed by force of arms.
