Tours in Israel are a booming business. Christians will pay any price to get the opportunity to speak with children, Holocaust survivors, soldiers and any "real" Jews. If they can talk to Jews then they can build a relationship which will lead to discussions of yeshu.

One tour company is JDI TOURS.

Serving churches and ministries has been JDI’s prime objective for more than a decade. Building on this cornerstone, JDI endeavors to strive for excellence in the travel industry and thereby impact the world with the gospel. Existing for this primary purpose....

At JDI, Bible Study Tours to Israel have been a vehicle for reaching out to Israel for more than a decade. Owners, who are Deacons in their home church, have been connected to Israel since 1935 when family members made Aliyah. Now with 3rd generation Sabras (natural born Israelis) in the Land, as a Believer owned and operated company combined with this background, JDI clearly understands Israel from a multi-faceted perspective.

Our Statement of Purpose for World Missions

After his ressurection, Jesus commanded His disciples to go into the whole world and preach the Gospel, making disciples of all nations, baptizing and teaching them. Another time, as He was about to ascend into heaven, Jesus told His disciples they would soon receive power from on high and thus become His witnesses in Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria, and to the uttermost parts of the earth.

Keshet has long been the premiere provider of quality spiritual and educational Israel programs for Jewish communities, and is now available to provide its innovative and exciting Israel touring programs to Christian communities.

The senior staff of Keshet is comprised of Yitzhak Sokoloff, the founding director, plus Dr. Peter Abelow, Kayla Ship, and Danny Ehrlich, each of whom grew up in American Jewish synagogues and youth movements, and who chose to live and work as Jewish educators in Israel.

Let Keshet show you the real Israel:

Experience first hand what you have only imagined as you read the Bible
Walk in the footsteps of Jesus and the disciples in Jerusalem and the Galilee
Visit Mt. Of Olives, Mt. Zion, Gethsemane and the Western Wall
Explore the Golan Heights, Mt. Carmel, Sea of Galilee, Judea and Samaria
Meet with Jewish families in their homes
See Prophecy Fulfilled- See first hand the ingathering of Israel from the four corners of the earth
Participate in hands-on volunteer opportunities
Bless and Stand in Solidarity with the People of Israel Keshet we know that spiritual growth must involve more than Israel sites visits. We insist that you have a real experience of the Sabbath, as it exists only in Israel. We facilitate meetings with Israelis: Ethiopian Jews; communities in Judea and Samaria; Christians living and creating in The Land; Home Hospitality; visit to an army base to meet soldiers; Arab Christians. And more, so that you may come to know Prophecy up close and first hand.

Become part of a bridge that is being built between hearts to reclaim the friendship between Christians and Jews by creating ties not only to the land, but to the people.

I want to make Jews aware that xtians are being brought into the yishuvim so I will be posting upcoming tours that include visits to yishuvim. It is my hope that someone living in each yishuv will be informed and protest the exposure to these xtians and to their false beliefs.

Where do you get your information? How are for informed of upcoming tours?

I had an encounter with them in Tel Aviv. I saw them marching around and almost had a fit. Many Jews are simply not equipped to answer them.
