ISRAEL

"If you have the opportunity to go to Israel with the Cantors, DO NOT MISS IT! It was the trip of a lifetime, so fun and also so deeply meaningful. We went to different sites to see what the Lord is doing TODAY in the land through fellow believers." Anita, Raleigh

Join Ron and Elana Cantor for their






This is different from any other tour! Elana and I have created a hand-crafted, unique experience for believers who don’t want to simply see where Yeshua walked, as amazing as that is, but also want to meet the living stones of Israel—to see where HE IS WALKING TODAY! We will meet Messianic leaders and believers from all over the country, visit some of our favorite places and restaurants and take you to beautiful places that the typical Israel tour never goes. And that is in addition to visiting all the historical sites like the Galilee and the Western Wall. This is truly a unique experience that you will not find on a cookie-cutter tour. Reserve your spot now!


Note: This is an active tour. There is walking involved in this tour everyday—and some hiking.












DAY 1 - Thursday, April 20: THE JOURNEY BEGINS

Today, you will board your flight and head to Israel for the tour of a lifetime!


DAY 2 - Friday, April 21: WELCOME TO ISRAEL!

Boker Tov (Good Morning!) You will arrive in the Holy Land! Welcome to the re-birthed Nation of Israel! Jeremiah, Isaiah and Ezekiel said that God would regather His people to this land, and now you are standing here! Ron and Elana will meet you at at the airport and we’ll jump on our luxury, air- conditioned, Wi-Fi-equipped coach. (You will be able to share photos and thoughts with your friends and family in real-time!) You will meet your licensed (and very smart) tour guide.

We’ll drive up the coast and then take 10-minute hike to a nature reserve to visit one of those places that tourists never see—the Amazing Shfayim Cliffs overlooking the Mediterranean Sea. We’ll continue north to the Herod’s port city of Caesarea. Here Paul was imprisoned for two years and Peter immersed the first Gentiles in water. This was Israel’s most modern city when Yeshua was alive. We‘ll take a walk on the beach at the ancient Roman Aqueduct.

After lunch we will visit a Messianic Congregation on Mount Carmel and finish the day at the traditional site where Elijah called down fire from heaven, which has the best overlook in the country where the armies of earth will gather in the valley of Armageddon.

We will the head to our hotel overlooking the Sea of Galilee.

DAY 3 - Shabbat, April 22: THE SEA OF GALILEE 

Let’s take a boat ride on the Sea of Galilee as we imagine Yeshua walking on the water and calming the Sea. Here will have morning devotions.

Once we get to the other side of the Sea we will visit the ancient city of Migdala and see the Synagogue that Yeshua preached in. Next we’ll enjoy a St. Peters fish lunch and head to Yeshua adopted hometown of Capernaum.

At sunset, we have a very special Shabbat Dinner at the Hotel planned (please dress up for Shabbat). Ron and Elana will recite the blessings over the candles, bread and wine and after dinner, we’ll enjoy a bonus! A Messianic Klezmer band will play and share their testimonies.


DAY 4 - Sunday, April 23: Golan Heights 

We’ll start the day in the Hula Valley, where we will visit the Hula Nature reserve. When the Jews returned to Israel in the 1800s, it was a malaria-filled swamp—now it is one of the most amazing places in Israel. For the active ones, there will be an 8K leisurely bike ride through the breathtaking reserve (no hills!). For others, there will be golf carts. Nearly 400 species of birds pass through the nature reserve and you might even spot some water buffalo.

Then, we’ll head to the beautiful Tel Dan nature reserve for an easy hike next to the Dan River, where King Jeroboam tried to build a “second Jerusalem”. Next we head to Caesarea Philippi. This is the place that Peter made his confession in Matthew 16 next to the infamous “Gates of Hell”. Check this video we made below:

DAY 5 - Monday, April 24: Dead Sea

We will start the day going up to Mount Arbel, enjoying a stunning view of the Sea of Galilee. On our last trip we ran into Michael W. Smith—who knows who we will meet this time?


We’ll proceed to Yardenit, where you will have an opportunity to be immersed by Ron in the Jordan River. We’ll continue to drive south through the beautiful Jordan Valley. We’ll visit Qumran, where the Dead Sea Scrolls where found. At Kfar Hanokdim, We’ll enjoy a Beduin style dinner and a camel ride. We’ll will stay in modern air-conditioned rooms, but in the middle of the desert. It is breathtaking! (Everyone loves this evening!!!)


DAY 7 - Tuesday, April 25:  Dead Sea/Masada

Masada was the last Jewish stronghold against
the Romans in 70 CE. We’ll ascend
Masada and see how the Jews lived on this mountain fortress, holding off the Romans. Then we’ll visit the hiding place of King David, En Gedi (One of Ron’s favorite spots!) where you will see gorgeous waterfalls, wildlife and more. David wrote many of the Psalms her.

Next, for 90 minutes, you will get to become a kid again, as we float in the Dead Sea Float, applying the healing mud. After a shower, we enjoy a relaxing ride to  Jerusalem.


DAY 8 - Wednesday, April 26: JERUSALEM, OLD CITY

We’ll begin our day at the epic Mt of
Olives, taking in the breathtaking view of
the Old City and the site where Jesus will
return. Ron will teach about the
significance of Golden Gate and the Second Coming. We’ll travel down the Kidron Valley and proceed to
the Garden Of Gethsemane.

Next, we’ll head to Mt. Zion and visit the Upper
Room where will see the first Messianic synagogue building. From here, we’ll continue to the
Western (“wailing”) Wall, the last remaining wall of the second Jewish Temple. We’ll go back in time as we walk the Tunnel Tour (Another favorite of Ron) on the same grounds that date to the time of Messiah.

Then it is a quick walk to the Garden Tomb for the Lord’s Supper and a time of personal reflection. 


DAY 9 - Thursady, April 27: JERUSALEM, NEW CITY

We’ll will spend the morning worshiping with our partners in ministry at Revive Israel with Asher Intrater. From there we will arrive at the Museum of Israel and see the Dead Sea Scrolls—the greatest archeological discovery in history.

We’ll proceed to the Shukthe Jerusalem Outdoor Market and enjoy an amazing meal. It is only a 2-minute walk to the top of one of Jerusalem’s tallest buildings to see the Pavilion Prayer Tower and pray for Israel as we look out over the city.

Lastly, we’ll visit Yad Vashem, the Holocaust Memorial. This is a both a place of great sadness and an experience of the spirit of hope and triumph, for those who trust in Messiah. 


DAY 10 - Friday, April 28: CITY OF DAVID

We’ll begin this morning at Ir D’vid (City of David), at the Gihon Spring, we’ll learn of how the city was overtaken by the Jebusites and how the original city of Jerusalem was established by King David. We’ll walk through Hezekiah’s tunnel (and Amazing Experience!!! Bring a small flashlight!), then proceed to the Southern Wall Excavations. Here, is where Peter preached his first sermon to 3,000 Jewish men, who where soon after immersed in local Mikvot (immersion tanks). The first Jewish flavored mega Church!

Next it is one of the most amazing museums—the Friends of Zion, where stories of some of the greatest Christian Zionists are told. Bring tissues! We’ll end the day with a prayer walk on the wall of Jerusalem. Yes, you will be a true watchman on the wall. (another favorite!)


DAY 11 - Shabbat, April 29: TEL AVIV! TIFERET YESHUA CONGREGATION

We will take up in beautiful Tel Aviv and start with day with a visit to the ancient port city of Jaffa, where Peter raised Tabitha for the dead. Next it is onto Rothschild Blvd., one of the most beautiful streets in Israel, leading to one of the most inspiring Museums in Israel—Independence Hall, where David Ben Gurion declared the State of Israel in 1948. During the trip Ron will share about the amazing events leading up to Ben Gurion’s declaration of Independence. Once physical Israel was born, the spiritual rebirth began and that is where we will go next, as we proceed to Ron’s congregation, Tiferet Yeshua for an anointed Messianic worship service and dinner with the Congregation. You will hear testimonies from Israelis as we enjoy a meal together.

For those taking care of their own airfare, we say Shalom, farewell...
