Israel 2015

We’re going to Israel!  We’d love for you to come with us!  On this trip we will be joining with our good friends from Countryside Christian Fellowship in Oregon, and Rich’s good friend Pastor Terry Dawson.  We are also blessed in having Miriam Feinberg as our tour guide.

Tour Dates: Tuesday, November 7 – Saturday, November 18, 2017

Cost:   $3398 per person (double occupancy, including airfare)  For now, the price is “approximate” and won’t be final until the airfare is actually booked.

Extension: There will be an optional three day extension to Petra (Friday, November 17 – Monday, November 20).  This extension will cover a flight and stay in Eilat, and a tour of Petra.  The current estimate for the extension is $1,000 per person (double occupancy)
