ISRAEL TOUR 2023

A Messianic Perspective

Join us on this life-changing journey!

June 21st to July 3rd 2023

13 Days - 11 Nights

$5,890 CAD

Direct Flight with Air Canada

Jacques Isaac Gabizon and his wife Sharon Gabizon. Jacques Isaac is Director on Ariel Ministries Canada and Messianic Leader of Beth Ariel Congregation, Montreal.

Your host for this trip to Israel is J. Isaac Gabizon, a Sephardic Jewish believer in Yeshua (Jesus). Born in Casablanca, Morocco and hailing from a long line of rabbinical ancestry, Pastor Gabizon came to faith in 1977 after investigating and accepting the claims of the Old Testament prophets as to who the Messiah is. Isaac has pastored at Beth Ariel Congregation in Montreal since 1998.

J. Isaac’s bible messages are aired on two Montreal radio stations, and several stations in the US. He can also be heard on OnePlace.com as well as on LightSources.com. He travels and speaks at churches, conferences and in bible schools (Capernwray). He has taught in Canada, the US and Mexico. Isaac and his wife Sharon have four children and ten grandchildren.

His teachings of the Scriptures emphasize the Jewish perspective, incorporating the cultural, social, and rabbinical teaching of the first century to help draw a more accurate understanding of God’s Word. His love for Yeshua is evident as he seeks to teach the foundational importance of seeing the Messiah throughout all the Scriptures (Luke 24:27).

We pray that this trip would bring us toward an even more intimate relationship with the Lord, through the backdrop of the Holy Land, where Abraham was chosen to head up a nation and where Yeshua came to fulfill the promise of the resurrection. This is the Land where He will come again!

Frequently Asked Questions

 

Air Travel
Nonstop from Montreal, Quebec to Tel Aviv, Israel and return (Montreal). If you are coming from another city in Canada or the United States, there will be an additional charge to get to Montreal.

Luggage
One large luggage is allowed per passenger along with one carry on (a 2nd luggage will cost an additional $100.00). Please check with Air Canada’s international luggage policy. Any additional luggage will be subject to additional charges by the airline, paid personally by the traveler.

Passports
All tour participants must have a passport which is valid up to 6 months following the date of return. Your passport must be valid up to and including January 3, 2024.  If you are a Canadian or US citizen, you do not need a visa for entry into Israel. Please make a photocopy of the first two pages of your passport and bring it along with you. In case of passport loss, you will have a copy of the needed information. This copy should be kept separate from your original passport.

Trip cancellation and medical insurance
The price for this trip does not include medical or travel insurance. Purchasing travel /medical insurance is extremely important. This will protect you from penalties should cancellation become necessary.

Immunizations
No immunization shots or vaccinations are required at present, unless otherwise noted.

Transportation

Tour Guide/ Biblical Teaching & Spiritual Application
Our tour guide is government licensed and will accompany us throughout this comprehensive trip. We will also have biblical teaching and spiritual application with our tour leader J. Isaac Gabizon. We will have evening sessions together which will include worship, messianic (Israeli dancing), and bible teaching relating to the day’s sites and touching on the next day’s schedule as well.

Tips and Taxes
Tips and Taxes and all entrance fees to museums and parks are included in the price.

Meals
Full breakfast and supper included, but lunches are not included in the price. Please allot approximately $10-15 US dollars for lunch (per day).

Money
Besides Israeli currency (the shekel) US dollars are accepted throughout almost all of Israel. You may consider buying $100.00 worth of shekels before leaving and having US dollars on hand for other purchases (gifts, souvenirs etc). You may also use the ATM machine in Israel.
Before travel, check to see if your bank has an ATM network — or even bank affiliates in Israel so you have a better chance of avoiding unnecessary fees.

SIM Cards
If you plan to use your cell phone in Israel, then you might want to get a sim card with a data plan(your phone needs to be unlocked before you leave Montreal). We can get a good price with a local company in Israel for a good amount of data and unlimited calling between Israel/Canada and Israel/USA.  Call the office for details.

Electrical System in Israel
The electrical system in Canada operates on 110 volts, and Israel uses 220 volts. Adapter kits containing converters and foreign plugs are available at consumer electronic stores or a travel/luggage specialty store. The converter is necessary only if you are taking appliances that do not have 110/220 options such as electric razors, etc. Many hair dryers come already equipped with a 110/220 switch. Even if appliances are equipped with the 110/220 option, you will still need an adapter. To the best of our knowledge, all  hotels will furnish hairdryers.

Clothing
Women: Please bring a shawl or something that will cover your shoulders when we enter some of the holy sites. You are not allowed to expose bare shoulders at these particular sites. Also, one knee length skirt or longer (or pants or capris) to cover up when entering some holy sites.

Men: You will not be allowed to wear shorts when visiting some holy sites. Please bring at least one pair of pants for the trip and or kakis whose length fall lower than the knee. .

You may bring a bathing suit with you as we hope to have an opportunity to swim in the Dead Sea. Bringing water shoes will help make walking on the rocks in the Dead Sea easier. You will also want to use them for your walk-through Hezekiah’s Tunnel. The hotel in Tiberius has an outdoor swimming pool so we might have opportunity to refresh ourselves at the end of the day. For those wishing to swim, you may also bring one beach towel with you.

Medicines
For some people, the change in climate and food could upset their system. We suggest you bring the following: aspirin or Tylenol, cold/sinus remedies, cough drops, medicine for diarrhea and upset stomach or motion sickness, and any special required medication. Make sure all medicines are in their original containers and are clearly labeled. This is especially important as you pass security at the airport.

Toiletries
You may choose to bring your own brand of shampoo, soap, etc, although all the hotels do provide these items.  All hotels provide hairdryers. It is also a good idea to bring tissues as some of the restrooms at the tourist sites run out of or do not provide toilet paper.  There are no laundry facilities in the hotels but a quick wash in the sink of some of your clothing with an overnight hang dry in your hotel room is a viable option.

We assume no responsibility or liability in connection with the services of any train, carriage, automobile, airplane, camel or other conveyance which will be used either wholly or in part. Neither will we be responsible for any error, omission, act or any injury, loss, accident or any delay which may be occasioned by reason of defect in any vehicle through neglect or default of any company or person engaged in the conveying of passengers. The tour directors accept no responsibility for losses or additional expenses due to delays or changes in motor coach, train, airplane services, or that of any other conveyance, sickness, accident, weather, strikes, war, violence, quarantine, or other causes, and all such losses or expenses must be borne by the individual.
