Spring 2019 Extended Study Tour to Palestine/Israel

This study tour is grounded in ICAHD
analysis and offers unique time with
Dr. Jeff Halper, ICAHD’s Founder,
who sets the scene by describing the
current reality in Palestine/Israel within
its historical and political context.
Jeff will help participants understand
the significance of the latest rapidly
unfolding developments including
the impact of the Nation-State bill
that passed in the Knesset and the
growing call for the solution to be
one democratic state.
Through spending time on both sides
of the divide, participants obtain insight
about the life of the occupied and the
occupier. As you meet with Palestinians,
learn how its society has been tragically
fragmented over seven decades and about
the acts of nonviolence and sumud (steadfastness) that persist. Hear voices from critical Israeli Jews who courageously challenge their government’s policies and lift a mirror to Israeli society.
Encounter both people and organisations that are on the cutting edge. The tour begins in Jerusalem and goes south into the Negev, east along the Jordan Valley, north to the Galilee and west along the Mediterranean Sea with many visits scheduled along the way. Debriefing sessions are held each evening which enhance the programme.
Accommodation is in Bethlehem, East Jerusalem and Nazareth. The cost of the tour is £1200 and includes the full tour programme staying at good three-star hotels at halfboard (bed, breakfast and evening meal), sharing a twin-bedded room with ensuite facilities, guidance from the tour leader, other day-guides and tips. Flights, lunches and travel insurance are not included. An additional supplement of £280 is available for single room accommodation by request. Travel is by our own private comfortable coach with an expert local driver from a licensed bus company. The group is kept to a maximum of 18 participants.
“Excellent selection of organisations and we valued the opportunity to travel within the West Bank and Israel to different locations. Information sharing throughout was excellent and the amount of learning and knowledge gathering was immense.”
