We traveled along both sides of the Jordan River and visited cities in Israel, Palestine and Jordan. The Sea of Galilee, Magdala, Capernaum, Jericao, Amman, Petra and Jerusalem were just a few of our stops. We looked at historic peoples in the region and examined the historic religious and political claims on land on both sides of the Jordan River.
This was our journey.

Friday, January 21st, 2011

After a leisurely dinner at Notre-Dame Center in Jerusalem, the students sat together to discuss some of their experiences during the trip so far.  The question asked repeatedly, "How can be help bring about some resolution to the conflict in the Holy Land?  What can we do to help the people?"  Today is a free day. Some are walking the walls of the Old City of Jerusalem.  Some are visiting the Cenacle, the church on the site of the Last Supper.  Some are off to the Wailing Wall for Shabbat prayers.

Wonderful weather!
