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 Scholar’s Program is designed for junior and senior scholars, without regard to religious affiliation, who are either writing their dissertations, or who are on sabbatical and desire to research and/or write on a topic integrally connected to this land, whether religious, historical, political or cultural. Each scholar can tailor the program to his or her own needs and the length of the program varies accordingly. 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 course offerings and dates for 2015 through 2017 are below.
