More Than a Pilgrimage:  Six-Week Program   

  • February 3rd – March 16th, 2021
  • February 16th – March 29th, 2022

The Six-Week program includes all of the elements mentioned in “The Tantur Experience.”  While we take into consideration the impact and effects of the Covid-19 virus in the Holy Land, this program is designed to allow participants to have an extended encounter time in the Holy Land during a quieter period with cooler climate, and yet still have all the excitement and activity of our One-Month Continuing Education Programs of the summer. A special component of the Six-Week program is a "wilderness experience" into the Negev Desert. Other excursions include an extended time in Galilee, opportunities to meet Palestinian Christian families (some of which trace their roots back to apostolic times), see village life and experience the proverbial Arab hospitality.  While the Six-Week program offers its participants an engaging schedule, it still allows time for personal reflection, rest and spiritual renewal, and some free time for exploring on your own or with others in the Six-Week "community." This program's length and content make it a popular choice for many clergy, members of religious communities, and academic/educational professionals on sabbatical.   

**Please note that, due to Covid restrictions, we will not be able to visit the Sinai as part of this experience.**
