Breakfast at the hotel. Proceed for the days sites

EIN KAREM: Christian tradition places the birth of John the Baptist — who announced the coming of Jesus Christ, his cousin — in the picturesque village of Ein Karem 7.5km south-west of Jerusalem.

CHURCH OF VISITATION – The Franciscan Visitation church in the village of Ein Kerem (Karem), on the west side of Jerusalem, is named after Virgin Mary’s visited to the summer house of the parents of John the Baptist

CHURCH OF JOHN THE BAPTIST – A Catholic church and monastery built over Byzantine and Crusaders chapels, and dedicated to John the Baptist. Inside the church is a cave where according to tradition was the birthplace of John the Baptist. John is an important figure in Christianity, and regarded as the “forerunner” – since John Baptized Jesus, and proclaimed Jesus as the Messiah.
MOUNT OF OLIVES: Separated from the Eastern Hill (the Temple Mount and the City of David) by the Kidron Valley, the Mt. of Olives has always been an important feature in Jerusalem’s landscape. From the 3rd millennium B.C. until the present, this 2900-foot hill has served as one of the main burial grounds for the city. The two-mile long ridge has three summits each of which has a tower built on it.

DOME OF THE ASCENSION: The Church of the Holy Ascension was taken by Saladin in 1187 and converted into a mosque and remains such today. It contains what is traditionally the last footprint of Jesus on earth before he ascended into heaven.
Two other places are claimed to be the location of the ascension. Constantine’s mother Helena built a church under the modern Paternoster Church to commemorate this event. A much later tradition connects the Russian Orthodox Church of the Ascension to Christ’s return into heaven.
Scripture indicates that the Jesus ascended into heaven in the vicinity of Bethany. This village is down the east slope of the Mt. of Olives about 1.5 miles (2.2 km). In this case, none of the traditional locations for the ascension are correct.

PATER NOSTER to witness the “Lord’s Prayer’ written in several languages.

DOMINUS FLEVIT CHURCH: Built in 1955 to commemorate the Lord’s weeping over Jerusalem, Dominus Flevit features a beautiful view of the city through its distinct chapel window. Excavations during construction of the church uncovered a number of ossuaries (bone boxes) from the time of Jesus with numerous inscriptions Palm Sunday Road

GARDEN OF GETHSEMANE: Early Christian pilgrims located the Garden of Gethsemane at the bottom of the slope of the Mount of Olives opposite the Temple Mount. Byzantine, Crusader and a modern church were built successively on the site where it is believed that Jesus prayed to the Father hours before his crucifixion. The modern Church of All Nations has a beautiful mosaic on its facade.

TOMB OF ST MARY – A church at the traditional place of the tomb of the Virgin Mary, mother of Jesus. The church is cut into the rock and has a form of a cross, with a wide staircase leading down into the church and tomb. According to tradition, Mary ascended into heaven. The tomb became the shrine for the assumption into heaven, hence the name of the church.

DORMITION ABBEY: Crowning the summit of the modern Mount Zion is Dormition Abbey. Commemorating the rest that Mary entered into, this complex was constructed by Kaiser Wilhelm II beginning in 1900. The church was built in response to a request to have a German Catholic church in the city following the Kaiser’s support for the construction of the Lutheran Church of the Redeemer in 1898.

CENACLE – The Cenacle (from Latin cenaculum), also known as the “Upper Room”, is a room in Jerusalem traditionally held to be the site of The Last Supper. The word is a derivative of the Latin word cena, which means dinner. In Christian tradition, based on Acts 1:13, the “Upper Room” was not only the site of the Last Supper (i.e. the Cenacle), but the usual place where the Apostles stayed in Jerusalem, and according to the Christian Encyclopedia “the first Christian church”.

DAVIDS TOMB -King David’s Tomb is a site viewed as the burial place of David, King of Israel, according to a tradition beginning in the 12th century. It is located on Mount Zion in Jerusalem, near the Hagia Maria Sion Abbey. The tomb is situated in a ground floor corner of the remains of the former Hagia Zion, a Byzantine church. Older Byzantine tradition dating to the 4th century identified the location as the Cenacle of Jesus and the original meeting place of the Christian faith. The building is now part of the Diaspora Yeshiva.

ST. PETER IN GALLICANTU – On the southeastern slope of the hill is one of the traditional locations for the house of Caiaphas. Gallicantu means “cock crowing” and it remembers the three denials of Peter. Built atop the ruins of a Byzantine church and monastery, Catholic pilgrims believe that the prison in which Christ was held is located inside the church. Others believe that a more likely location for Caiaphas’ house is in the Armenian property outside Zion Gate.

CHURCH OF NATIVITY: The Church of the Nativity is a basilica located in Bethlehem, Palestinian territories. The church was originally commissioned in 327 AD by Constantine and his mother Helena over the site that is still traditionally considered to be located over the cave that marks the birthplace of Jesus of Nazareth. The Church of the Nativity site’s original basilica was completed in 339 AD and destroyed by fire during the Samaritan Revolts in the sixth century AD. A new basilica was built 565 AD by Justinian, the Byzantine Emperor, restoring the architectural tone of the original. The site of the Church of the Nativity has had numerous additions since this second construction, including its prominent bell towers. Due to its cultural and geographical history, the site holds a prominent religious significance to those of both the Christian and Muslim faiths.

THE MILK GROTTO: The Milk Grotto (officially Magharet Sitti Mariam, “Grotto of the Lady Mary”) is a serene grotto only a few minutes’ walk from Manger Square in Bethlehem.
This grotto, with a Franciscan chapel built above it, is considered sacred because tradition has it that the Holy Family took refuge here during the Slaughter of the Innocents, before their flight into Egypt. Tradition has it that while Mary was nursing Jesus here, a drop of milk fell to the ground, turning it white.
The irregularly shaped grotto is hollowed out of the soft white rock. A church was built here by the 5th century, and mosaic fragments on the terrace of the grotto, with geometrical motifs and crosses, are thought to belong to this time.
Both Christians and Muslims believe scrapings from the stones in the grotto boost the quantity of a mother’s milk and enhance fertility. Mothers usually mix it in their drinking water; would-be mothers place the rock under their mattress.

THE SHEPHERDS FIELDS: Caves where shepherds “kept watch over their flock” still abound in the area east of Bethlehem. Here, the Gospel of Luke tells us, an angel announced the birth of Jesus. The angel’s good news was not given to the noble or pious, but to workers with a low reputation. Jewish literature ranked “shepherd” as among the most despised occupations of the time — but Christ was to identify himself with this occupation when he called himself “the Good Shepherd” (John 10:11).

DAY6: ISRAEL
Breakfast at the hotel. Proceed for the days sites

BETHSEDA POOLS: Among the most famous of Jesus’ miracles is recounted in the Gospel of John, where Jesus heals the paralytic at the Bethesda Pool (John 5:2-9). It is not the only one of Jesus’ miracles of healing to take place at a pool in Jerusalem, however. In addition to the Bethesda Pool, the Gospel of John also says that Jesus healed the blind man at the Siloam Pool.

CHAPEL OF FLAGELLATION: According to tradition, this was the site where the Roman soldiers flogged Jesus after he was convicted and sentenced to death.

CHAPEL OF CONDEMNATION -t he Catholic Franciscan chapel of the “Condemnation and Imposition of the Cross” is located in their complex at station #2 of Via Dolorosa. According to tradition, this was the site where Jesus took up his cross after being sentenced. It is based on the finding of large Roman pavement stones that may have been part of Pilate’s judgment seat for the condemnation of Jesus, and the place where Jesus took up his cross after being sentenced

VIA DOLOROAS – WAY OF THE CROSS:
The Via Dolorosa (Latin, “Way of Grief”, “Way of Sorrows”, “Way of Suffering” or simply “Painful Way”) is a street, in two parts, within the Old City of Jerusalem, held to be the path that Jesus walked, carrying his cross, on the way to his crucifixion. The winding route from the Antonia Fortress west to the Church of the Holy Sepulcher—a distance of about 600 meters (2,000 feet)—is a celebrated place of Christian pilgrimage. The current route has been established since the18th century, replacing various earlier versions.[1] It is today marked by nine Stations of the Cross; there have been fourteen stations since the late 15th century, with the remaining five stations being inside the Church of the Holy Sepulcher. Calvary,

GOLGOTHA: Calvary, also known as Golgotha was, according to the Gospels, a site immediately outside Jerusalem’s walls where Jesus was crucified.

THE HOLY SEPULCHER: Originally built by the mother of Emperor Constantine in 330 A.D., the Church of the Holy Sepulcher commemorates the hill of crucifixion and the tomb of Christ’s burial.

WAILING WALL – This is the holiest shrine of the Jewish world. The Western Wall is part of the retaining wall supporting the temple mount built by Herod in 20 B.C. After the destruction of the Second Temple in 70 A.D., Jews were not allowed to come to Jerusalem until the Byzantine period, when they could visit once a year on the anniversary of the destruction of the Temple and weep over the ruins of the Holy Temple. Because of this, the wall became known as the “Wailing Wall.”

BETHANY: The little village of Bethany, on the eastern slope of the Mount of Olives about 3km from Jerusalem, was a favourite place of rest and refuge for Jesus.

HOUSE OF MARY, MARTHA AND LAZARUS: This little family of Bethany were Jesus’ friends who opened their home to him, and it was at their house that he found refreshment during his earthly ministry. The depth of affection and love that they had for Jesus, and he for them, is evident in the Gospel narratives about them, most particularly in the story of Lazarus death in the Gospel according to John. The names of Mary, Martha, and Lazarus, on various dates, appear in lists of martyrs from the seventh and eighth centuries.

LAZARUS TOMB: The Tomb of Lazarus. The tomb is the purported site of a miracle recorded in the Gospel of John in which Jesus resurrects Lazarus

HEBRON: Hebron (20 miles south of Jerusalem) .Hebron entered history with Abraham. “After leaving his nephew Lot in the region of Bethel , Abraham moved his tent and came and dwelt by the oaks of Mamre which are at Hebron, and there he built an alter to the Lord”(Genesis 13:18) ,. After an oriental bargaining Abraham bought the cave of Machpela for four hundred shekels of silver from Ephron the Hittite. The cave of Machpela became the family burial place where Sara, Abraham himself, Isaac, Rebecca, Leah and finally Jacob, whose body was brought from Egypt, were buried.

JAFFA Called Joppa in biblical times, Jaffa is one of the oldest port cities on earth. Picturesque Jaffa, on the Mediterranean Sea just south of Tel Aviv, is where the apostle Peter received a crucial vision that changed his mind about accepting gentiles into the early Christian Church.

ST PETERS CHURCH: St Peter’s Church is 2.5 kilometers east on the hill of Abu Kabir at Giv’at Herzl. It is on the supposed site of the tomb of a seamstress called Tabitha, or Dorcas in Greek, who was raised from the dead by Peter

SIMON THE TANNERS HOUSE

Caesarea— in this attractive Mediterranean seaport, the apostle Peter baptized the first recorded Gentile convert to Christianity — Cornelius, a centurion in the Roman army.

AQUEDUCT OF CAESAREA: The Aqueduct brought running water to the old city of Caesarea, along a raised aqueduct. The source of the water was the springs of Shummi, 10KM away. Herod build the aqueduct in the 1st C BC. Later, in the 2nd C AD it was expanded by the Romans. Later, 2 more aqueducts were built.

AMPHITHEATER (VIEW ONLY): A grand entertainment place was built by Herod near his palace – a large Hippodrome in the shape of a long “U” (50 X 250M), with 10,000 seats in 12 rows. In this amphitheater the Romans conducted horse race (Hippo in Greek), special events, and games

MT CARMEL: The Prophet Elijah’s fire-lighting challenge — one of the Old’s most spectacular contests between Yahweh, the God of the Israelites, and a pagan deity — took place on the south-eastern summit of Mount Carmel.
On the south-eastern peak of Mount Carmel, the site is now known as Muhraka (“the Scorching”). It is marked by a dramatic stone statue of Elijah, sword raised to heaven as he slaughters a Baal priest, and a small Carmelite monastery, surrounded by a nature reserve.

ELIJAH’S CAVE: A small cave under a monastery is held by a Christian tradition to be a place where Elijah occasionally lived — as people on Mount Carmel have lived in caves since prehistoric times.
Opposite the monastery, a footpath down towards the Mediterranean leads to another grotto called Elijah’s Cave. Here the prophet is said to have meditated before his encounter with the priests of Baal. The cave is also thought to be where Elijah established a “school of prophets”

BAHAI GARDENS—VIEW ONLY: Mount Carmel’s most spectacular religious memorial, however, is the Shrine of the Báb, which runs in manicured terraces up the northern slope. The site is a sacred place for Baha’is around the world.

NAZARETH FULL CIRCUIT: It also became the home town of Jesus, Mary and her husband Joseph after the Holy Family returned from fleeing to Egypt to escape Herod the Great’s soldiers.

BASILICA OF ANNUNCIATION: The massive two-storey Church of the Annunciation, in strikingly modern architectural style and colourfully decorated, is the largest Christian church in the Middle East.

JOSEF’S WORKSHOP: Next to the Church of the Annunciation, on the northern side, is the Church of St Joseph (also known as the Church of the Nutrition and Joseph’s Workshop).
This is a solid and unpretentious building, Stairs lead down to a crypt, where a 2-metre square basin cut into the rock, its floor decorated in a black-and-white mosaic, is believed to be a pre-Constantinian baptismal site.

MARY’S WELL: Some 400 metres north of the Church of the Annunciation, just off the main street, is Mary’s well. Fed by the main freshwater spring in the little village, it would have been visited daily by Mary, often accompanied by her young son.
Water from the spring can be seen in St Gabriel’s Church, in a well-like structure in the crypt. The stonework dates from the time of the Crusaders, who also built a church on this site. St Gabriel’s, surrounded by a high wall, contains many interesting icons and frescoes.

CANA: Cana in Galilee is celebrated as the scene of Jesus’ first miracle. It is actually the place of his first two public miracles in Galilee — the changing of water into wine and the remote healing of an official’s son.
Overnight: Tiberias

DAY8 : ISRAEL
Breakfast at the hotel. Proceed for the days sites

MOUNT OF BEATITUDES: The Mount of Beatitudes (Hebrew: Har HaSimcha) refers to a hill in northern Israel where Jesus is believed to have delivered the Sermon on the Mount.

CAPERNAUM: At Capernaum – known as Jesus’ “own town” (Matt. 9:1) – “walking where Jesus walked” takes on a thrilling new meaning. As you sit on the stone benches of Capernaum’s ancient synagogue, you’ll be reminded that right here, Jesus taught (Mark 1:21; John 6:59) and healed a man possessed by an evil spirit (Mark 1:23-27). It was the synagogue on this very spot, whose foundations you can still see, which Luke says was built by the centurion whose servant Jesus later healed (Luke 7:3-5). Jesus also raised from the dead the daughter of this synagogue’s leader (Luke 8:49-53).
The ruins that surround you here, from homes with ordinary tools of daily life to intricately decorated stone carvings, are powerful reminders of Jesus’ prediction about this town (Matt. 11:23). A highlight is Peter’s house, where Jesus healed Peter’s mother-in-law (Matt. 8:14-15; Mark 1:29-31). Peter’s house was a simple dwelling, like many others that archaeologists have unearthed in this small fishing and farming village. But unlike the others, here Christian pilgrims over the centuries left no less than 131 inscriptions on the walls. Jesus’ name appears frequently, as does Peter’s, along with crosses, pilgrims’ names and blessings.

TABGHA: In the region of Tabgha, on the northern shore of the Sea of Galilee, lies the Church of the Multiplication of Loaves and Fishes, the traditional site of the food multiplication story found in all four gospels (Matthew 14:13-21, Mark 6:31-44, Luke 9:10-17, John 6:5-15). It is also where Jesus appeared to his disciples after his resurrection (John 21:1-17). The church is most famous for a mosaic of loaves and fishes from the original mid-third century church.

PRIMACY OF PETER: The Church of the Primacy of St. Peter is a Franciscan church located in Tabgha, Israel, on the northwest shore of the Sea of Galilee. It commemorates Jesus’ reinstatement of Peter as chief among the Apostles.

MENSA CRISTI: The church contains a projection of limestone rock in front of the present altar which is venerated as a “Mensa Christi”, Latin for table of Christ. According to tradition this is the spot where Jesus is said to have laid out a breakfast of bread and fish for the Apostles, and told Peter to “Feed my sheep” after the miraculous catch, the third time he appeared to them after his resurrection. (John 21:1-24)

GALILEE BOAT RIDE – Sail on the Galilee sea in a boat similar to the boat used by Jesus and his disciples.

YARDENIT: Yardenit also known as the Yardenit Baptismal Site, is a baptism site located along the Jordan River in the Galilee region. It is believed that Jesus was baptized by John the Baptist near this spot.

MOUNT TABOR: It is believed by many Christians to be the site of the Transfiguration of Jesus.
MOUNT CARMEL: It was on Mount Carmel that Elijah made his stand against the many prophets of Baal and Asherah who were corrupting the Israelites at the time. The account is given in 1 Kings 18. After a supernatural demonstration of the difference between the true God and idolatry, the Israelites were convinced to turn back to the true God. The outcome of the contest was not as happy for Elijah’s opponents, who all lost their lives.

MUHRAKA: The word Muhraka means ’the place of burning.’ Both tradition and key geographical details point to this site as the biblical site where Elijah fought the prophets of Baal (1 Kings 18:16-45). According to the Hebrew Bible, Elijah approaches and leaves the mountain into the Jezreel valley (1 Kings 18:45); moreover, the biblical passage ends with him sending his servant back up to the top of the mountain to ’look toward the sea’ (1 Kings 18:43).

BETHANY FULL CIRCUIT: The little village of Bethany, on the eastern slope of the Mount of Olives about 3km from Jerusalem, was a favourite place of rest and refuge for Jesus.

HOUSE OF MARY, MARTHA AND LAZARUS: This little family of Bethany were Jesus’ friends who opened their home to him, and it was at their house that he found refreshment during his earthly ministry. The depth of affection and love that they had for Jesus, and he for them, is evident in the Gospel narratives about them, most particularly in the story of Lazarus death in the Gospel according to John. The names of Mary, Martha, and Lazarus, on various dates, appear in lists of martyrs from the seventh and eighth centuries.
LAZARUS TOMB: The Tomb of Lazarus. The tomb is the purported site of a miracle recorded in the Gospel of John in which Jesus resurrects Lazarus

DEAD SEA: Biblically, it was a place of refuge for King David. It was one of the world’s first health resorts (for Herod the Great), and it has been the supplier of a wide variety of products, from balms for Egyptian mummification to potash for fertilizers. People also use the salt and the minerals from the Dead Sea to create cosmetics and herbal sachets.

QUMRAN—VIEW ONLY: Qumran is famous as the hiding place of the Dead Sea Scrolls, a literary treasure trove hidden since shortly after the time of Christ.

YOTVATA KIBBUTZ: Yotvata is a cooperative community, where most adult residents work on the kibbutz in production, services or education. The revenues are equally distributed among the members regardless of their position, along the idea of each one gives as much as he can and gets as much as he needs. Most of daily affairs are conducted communally – education, holidays, dining (three meals a day conducted in the commune dining-room are giving the community more relaxed time to get together) and more. Yotvata Dairy is a milk products factory which provides the kibbutz with its main source of income and occupies the highest number of members.
Agriculture is second in income but perhaps the first in importance for the community character and pride. Agriculture branches are irrigated land (onions, potatoes, corn, animal feed, garlic and pumpkins), plantations (dates and mangos) and a big and modern dairy farm.
