Ethiopian Group visit the Holy Land
800 Ethiopian pilgrims traveled to Israel in May 2013 to spend time touring the Holy Land.
The pilgrims visited the north of the country and the Sea of Galilee touring the religious sites in the area and enjoying a boat ride on the Sea of Galilee in a replica of a wooden Jesus boat. They also visited the Church of Annunciation in Nazareth.
Most of their time was spent in Jerusalem touring the Old City, The Church of the Holy Sepulcher and other sites in Jerusalem. A special event to celebrate Easter was held at the Ethiopian Church in Jerusalem.
