Israel NOW Tour 2020

Michelle and her team are joining Ruth Fazal and Gil Pentzak on a one-of-a-kind tour throughout Israel Spring 2020.

Join us for a total of fourteen days in Israel. The first part of this trip will be touring the land of Israel with Michelle Seidler & Worship leader, Composer, and world famous violinist Ruth Fazal. The second part of the trip we will join Gil Pentzak, an Orthodox Jewish Man. Ruth and Gil will lead us in a week full of worship, conversation together, meeting others in Israel and learning from each other, Christian and Orthodox Jew.  

The back story:

Since 2013, Ruth Fazal and Gil Pentzak have been working together to bring greater understanding, respect, friendship and love between Christians and Orthodox Jews. This began with their own journey, of sharing their walk with God, as a Christian and as an Orthodox Jew. The journey has not always been easy, but as they have continued to seek to honor one another, Gil and Ruth are paving a way for many to follow after.

After the making of the film ‘Between Heaven and Earth in 2013, Ruth and Gil began hosting evenings in Jerusalem, for groups of Christians visiting Israel. Worshiping God together through song, and modelling their ongoing journey through their conversation in front of the group,they realized that in order to really build relationship with a group, more time was needed. This led them to decide to extend the invitation for groups to join them for a whole week in Israel.

In 2014, Michelle was invited to attend the first NOW in Jerusalem tour that Ruth and Gil were hosting. After having been to Israel a dozen or so times before, Michelle wasn’t really interested in doing a tour, but at the prompting of The Lord, she went. It was life-transforming. This tour was completely different than anything she had ever experienced— it wasn’t the normal ‘Christian perspective’ that she grew accustomed to from being in Israel. On this trip she was able to see things from a different perspective as Orthodox Jew and Christian came together. This filled Michelle with more of God’s heart and mind related to Israel. She was so impacted that she has brought groups back to Israel to Join Ruth and Gil on this tour.

This tour is designed with the focus to meet each other, and to meet Israelis. We visit places that are not on the usual tourist map, and the pace of the week is very relaxed. This time is an in-depth week for Christians who love Israel and are ready to learn and understand more. Christian and Orthodox Jew walk alongside one another with conversation, worship, and studying God’s word.

We invite you to come worship with us, and experience a unique journey in Israel!
