October 24 - November 6, 2016

Co-sponsored by The Fellowship of Reconciliation

This delegation is your opportunity to visit during the olive harvest season — a culturally rich and important time. Hear from farmers and learn of the importance of agriculture to the economy and culture. As with all IFPB delegations, you will also meet additional Israelis and Palestinians working for peace and justiceas well as visit many impotant historical sites.

Delegation Costs and Logistics

The cost of the delegation will be $2650. Apply by October 6 and get $500 off this price!

Cost include 13 days of the delegation, hotel and home stay accommodations, breakfasts and dinners, local transportation, guides, speaker/event fees, basic tips and gratuities. Partial scholarships may be available for those with demonstrable need.

The cost does not include domestic and international airfare. Interfaith Peace-Builders works with a local travel agent in Jerusalem to secure the best group rates for the delegation to travel together on the same flight from Washington, DC. Therefore, delegates do not need to book their own international airfare.


* Meetings pertaining to the specific theme amount to an average of about 20% of all meetings and the overall emphasis remains with exploring the social and political realities in the region in general. Thus, any addition of a theme will not change the overall delegation itinerary greatly. Additionally, the ability to participate in the olive harvest is dependent on the stage of the olive harvest season and the weather on the ground.
