Tantur Programs

Three Month Group 2012 at Mount Tabor

Tantur has developed several different Programs and Special Courses to serve those seeking to deepen their understanding of this land, its history, its culture, its people and their own faith. The Continuing Education Programs are designed for those who are members of a Christian community, whether as priests, pastors, educators or lay people. These programs range in length from three weeks (the Easter Encounter) to three months. The average program size is between 15 to 20 participants, with the Easter Encounter Program typically having approximately 20 participants. Scholars may also opt to participate in the Continuing Education Programs by attending various lectures and field trips being offered during their stay. From year to year Tantur may also offer additional special courses, such as language classes and event-related programs. Our list of open enrollment course offerings for 2018 and 2019 are below.
