A Uniquely Themed Tour
Those who join this tour will be embarking on two kinds of journeys which may very well be utterly unique in our generation... not just a geographical trip, but also a discovery of their new identity. People from two disparate backgrounds, the Jewish world and the Christian world, will explore the special relationship between the Jewish people and those non-Jews who are grafted into them.
Patterned after the Book of Ruth, participants on this Torah-focused, immersive tour will witness the transformation of that multicultural organism into something different, a homogenous entity described by Rabbi Sha'ul (Paul) in Ephesians 2 as "making the two into one new man". It will be an experience which illustrates the journey of Naomi, Ruth and Boaz from the pages of the Bible.
This one-of-a-kind experience puts into practice what it means to be “partakers in the rich root of the olive tree” (Romans 11:17-18) by identifying with our Israeli hosts in where we'll visit and what we'll do… and also where we won't visit and what we won't do each day.
In the words of one pastor who has already experienced it, “…I was embraced as a part of a culture and the people of Israel… I was a part of an ancient people. The experience has changed me forever.”
Like Naomi and Ruth, both Jews and non-Jews will join together in a discovery of what the God of Israel intended to demonstrate from the very beginning: One united people who have been redeemed from slavery in order to walk freely in obedience toward Him.
R’ Daniel describes his life’s highest calling as “...leading my wife and seven children to serve Hashem in mitzvos and tzedakah. If others embrace a community Torah lifestyle as a consequence, then my joy knows no bounds.”
R’ Daniel received orthodox rabbinic training through a Jerusalem based yeshiva under the supervision of Rabbi Israel Meir Lau, former Chief Rabbi of Israel and other rabbis in the United States. However, his final credentials from within the orthodox framework were withheld because of his belief that Y’shua is the Jewish Messiah. He continues his rabbinic learning both in the United States and in Israel.
R’ Daniel is director of JewishEyes.org, a worldwide virtual Torah learning community which reaches 113 countries on 6 continents. He has served as the rav (halachic overseer) for a Jewish community in northern Michigan since 1996. He has also served as radio host, astronomy lecturer and Israel tour leader.
