An international group of eight hikers completed a walk along part of Abraham’s Path in Palestine. They began their journey in Nablus, exploring the old city before staying overnight with local families in the village of Awarta.

 The following day they walked from Awarta to Aqraba, going on to spend the night in our first ‘family guesthouse’ in the village of Duma.

Beautiful landscape, culture, meeting  locals and visiting ancient historical sites of Palestine were just a few of the highlights of this spring's Southern Trail Masar Ibrahim Al-Khalil experience. Starting from Solomon’s Pool in Artas, built by King Herod and once used to collect spring and rain water from the surrounding valleys to provide water for Jerusalem,  the program participants learned much about village life and culture in Palestine.

This early April, Siraj Center Hosted a successful bike tour of nearly two dozen cyclists from the Britain and America.

 

Starting their Jenin to Jerusalem cycling tour on April 5th,  they cycled from Jenin towards Sabestia, a small Palestinian town set in a fertile valley where figs, olives, grapes and the other fruits and vegetables grow in abundance. Local tradition holds that it was in Sebastiya that John the Baptist was beheaded, and an abundance of archaeological ruins from different eras can be found.   The group then cycled towards the village of Zababdeh, enjoying the relaxed countryside atmosphere of this town situated in the fertile farmland plain of the northern West Bank, then cycled on to Nablus, where they had a tour of the Old City before turning in for the evening.
