On this new study abroad trip, you'll see firsthand the challenges and opportunities of interfaith interaction and the importance of tolerating and respecting other views.
You'll stay for most of the trip in the Lutheran Guest House in Jerusalem, where you can study, pray, socialize and volunteer.
You'll have several opportunities to speak with Arab Israeli and Jewish activists and families, as well as to visit the Holocaust Education Center.
You'll also take side trips to Bethlehem and Tel Aviv.
