Footprints of Jesus

As you follow in the footsteps of Jesus, you will find a mosaic of backgrounds and cultures – Christian Arabs, Muslim Arabs, Druze and Jews – all living together in an ethnic Galilean paradise.

It is a seven-day pilgrimage in the beautiful and rugged landscape of Galilee. An experience in the Holy Land that will change your life forever. Let your sandals carry you and let the Bible be your guide.
