HSA Abroad: Israel 2009!

Sat May 23, 09 9:53 pm

It’s official! We are very pleased to announce that we have completed all the groundwork and arrangements to make possible the 2009 HSA Abroad Israel Tour this fall!

When do we leave?

We’ll be departing from Newark International Airport on November 21, 2009 to spend 10 days and 8 nights in Israel.

What will we do and see?

We’ve designed this tour specifically for Homeschool ALUMNI. From Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, we will be experiencing all the Biblical and historical “must sees” that Israel has to offer…as well as some interesting extras such as an excavation site in Megiddo. We can promise that this tour will be unique, fast-paced, and fun! Email Emilie C. at and request the full itinerary to see what’s in store!

Will we have a tour guide?

Yes! We are very excited to have Moti Dagan, a licensed Israeli tour guide with 40+ years experience in Christian tours and an excellent reputation, guiding us and expounding on the historical and Biblical significance of each place we visit.

How much will this tour cost?

We are working over the weekend to finalize the exact price, but we are very pleased with rates we’ve received from the hotels, airlines, etc. The price will include lodging, breakfast and dinner each day, transportation, the tour guide’s services, site and museum admission fees, a special Thanksgiving dinner in Bethlehem, and round-trip airfare from Newark International Airport.

Sounds great! How do I sign up?

We will have registration details online soon, but if you’re think you might be able to join us, please contact Emilie C. at as soon as possible to let her know you’re interested.

More to come...

I've received FOUR messages this evening about this trip...all exactly the same. I think there's something wrong with the system. Please check into this. Thanks.

Yeah, I got all four too.

This is actually going to happen, after all that discussion on that huge long sticky thread in events?
