CALENDAR

 What is the difference between Session 1 and Session 2 

Both sessions are virtually the same. The lecture topics and some of the field trip sites differ so as not to be too repetitive for those attending both excavation sessions.

Testimonials

  • " The Israel trip was one of the most memorable experiences of my life, and, I am continually told, of the lives of many in our group. From the generous efforts of Wink to make the trip a go in the midst of the financial instability of the world’s economic turbulence, to the incredibly informed, passionate and pastoral leadership of Steve, to the deeply enriching fellowship of the group, to the beauty and depth of richness of the land, this was a faith-journey like no other. Thank you Emmaus for helping make this a reality and for providing an opportunity to experience the land of Israel first-hand. The group feedback was nothing but enthusiastically positive to the point that people are still talking about it fondly. On behalf of the Toronto group, Thank You and God bless!"
