Join Dr. Michael Rydelnik (Professor of Jewish Studies, Moody Bible Institute, host and teacher on Open Line, his nationally broadcast Bible Q&A radio program ) and Rabbi Larry Feldman (President of the Messianic Jewish Alliance of America, leader of Shuvah Yisrael Messianic Synagogue) for a trip of a life time to the Land of Israel.
This Messianic Jewish Journey, a unique tour of Israel, will explore the Land from Dan to Beersheva with an emphasis on discovering our Jewish, Messianic and Biblical heritage. Scripture from Genesis and the Prophets, to the Gospels, Acts and Revelation will come alive. Your time in the Land will enrich your walk with the Messiah Yeshua, and transform your Bible maps from lines on a page to experiential geography. Your reading and application of Scripture will go from black and white to color.
Explore the tombs of ancient rabbis from Judah HaNasii at Beit She’arim to Rambam in Tiberius. Visit beautiful Tzippori, center of Jewish life and learning in the Mishnaic Period. Stand in silence at the Acco British Prisioner’s Museum in, where our young freedom fighters paid the ultimate price for the restoration of Israel. Experience the Declaration of the State of Israel at Independence Hall, Tel Aviv, as you listen to Ben Gurion’s speech and sing HaTikvah as if it were 1948. Weep at Yad V’Shem as we recall our tragic loss, but rejoice at God’s faithfulness to preserve His people and bring us back to our Promised Land.
Visit the MJAA Forest, and go to the Joseph Experience. There you will see the work of the MJAA first hand. Then join the MJAA team in a service project providing both humanitarian aid and the Good News of Messiah to our needy Jewish brothers and sisters in Israel.
Take this unique opportunity to expand your Bible knowledge and deepen your faith on location. You’ll hike Tel Dan along the source of the Jordan, “sail” on the waters of the Sea of Galilee, survey Mount Megiddo (Armageddon), hike to the waterfalls at Ein Gedi where David hid from Saul, enjoy spa time at the Dead Sea, splash through Hezekiah’s tunnel, learn the Scriptures in Yeshua’s synagogue of Capernaum, pray at the Western Wall, and celebrate the Resurrection of the Messiah Yeshua in Jerusalem.
Join us on this Messianic Jewish Journey to where the key events of the Hebrew Bible and New Covenant actually occurred. Come to understand the Lord’s work in the land of Israel and the challenges faced by Israel among her neighbors. Explore your spiritual heritage and deepen your walk with the Lord as you pray, sing, worship, study, laugh and learn in “His Holy Land” (Psalm 78:54).
