Centenary Tour to the Holy Land 29 November – 9 December 2017
The Society, in cooperation with the World Mission Council, is organising a tour to Israel / Palestine to coincide with the Centenary marking the entry of General Allenby into Jerusalem on the 11th December 1917. This event sparked the Church of Scotland into establishing St Andrew’s Scots Memorial Church and Hospice.
The tour will focus on the sites of some of the strategic battles which led to the liberation of Jerusalem from the Ottoman occupation, and also sites of significance to the Christian faith in Jerusalem, Bethlehem and the Galilee. We will meet many of the people and organisations working today with the people of Palestine.
Flights will depart from Edinburgh for Tel Aviv with local travel by bus. Accommodation will be in St Andrew’s Scots Guesthouse, Jerusalem, and the Scots Hotel in Tiberias.
The tour will cost £1426 including the air fare from Edinburgh, accommodation on a half-board basis, local travel, a guide and entry fees to sites. Insurance and your local spending money are not included.
