Hello, my name is John Williamson, and I will be your Tour leader on this extraordinary journey to Jerusalem and the West Bank.
This region is both remarkable and diverse, yet it is often under-represented across our Boarding School campuses. The students in and around Jerusalem express themselves using multiple languages while embodying unique cultures, ethnicities, and religions. The majority of these students, too, are similar to others across the globe as they fundamentally seek to better themselves, their families, and their communities through education. I am proud to announce that this will be the least expensive Tour ever offered by Linden!
As a frequent traveler to this region, I’ll help you examine both the complex heritage of the area, as well as some of the intricacies of the student markets located within it. This exciting recruitment journey begins with our arrival on a weekend, so our first day will be a collection of cultural events in and around the Old City of Jerusalem. We’ll have a professional guide to help us understand history, faiths, food, and daily life of this complex society. The next three days will be teeming with multiple school fairs and counselor meetings throughout each day, and a large recruitment fair every evening.
Our intense three-day schedule of events and back-to-back evening fairs will be held in Ramallah, Jerusalem, and Bethlehem, and then topped off with a celebratory final farewell dinner at the famous Barbra’s restaurant high on a hill overlooking the skylines of Bethlehem and Jerusalem. It’s a momentous set of events and not to be missed.
I would like to personally welcome you to our Jerusalem & West Bank Tour, and hope that you will join us for what will be a strategic and productive series of events across the region. As always, I am here to answer any and all questions which can assist you in making the most of your time while on this Tour. I look forward to having you with me on the Tour and in Jerusalem.
