WOW - Women of the Word in the Holy Land
Once again the nonprofit organization in the USA, Woman of the Word, brought a group on a Christian tour of Israel.
Arriving in the Holy Land in February the group stayed for 10 days touring around the country. The group traveled up to the North to visit sites in the Sea of Galilee area including Nazareth, Tiberias, Mount of Beatitudes, Capernaum, Tabgha and Yardenit for a baptism experience in the Jordan River. The group also went on a boat ride on the Sea of Galilee in a replica of a wooden Jesus boat. While in the north of Israel they toured, amongst other places, the Golan Heights, Mount Carmel, Haifa and Beit Shean.
Traveling South the group visited Ein Gedi, Masada and enjoyed some time in the healing waters of the Dead Sea before continuing on to Jerusalem where they toured the city visiting the Garden of Gethsemane, the Cardo, Jewish Quarter – Western Wall, Church of St. Anne and the adjacent Pools of Bethesda, walked along the Via Dolorosa and visited the Garden Tomb.
The group also spent some time at Yad Vashem Museum and Memorial to the Holocaust.
WOW already has another tour to Israel planned for 2014. Vered Hasharon looks forward to welcoming Women of the Word back to enjoy our beautiful country again.
