Program #20846RJ
6 Days | 5 Nights
ACTIVITY LEVEL: Easy
EasyFor people looking to exercise their minds more than their bodies. There’s minimal walking and not too many stairs.
ModerateThese programs get you on your feet and include activities such as walking up to a mile in a day through a city and standing in a museum for a few hours.
ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding — and rewarding — programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.

One God, Three Beliefs
Examine the origins of the three major monotheistic religions, Judaism, Christianity and Islam, along with the explanation of how they blossomed, were interpreted and survived. (Note: this class does not touch of the historical validity of beliefs.)

Life Under a Cloud: The Cold War
The Cold War was a continual state of political conflict, military tension and economic competition that dominated international affairs for half a century. It was a shadow war marked by suspicion, mutual distrust and perceptions of hostile intent.

Tales and Myths from the Ancient Near East
The ancient Near East produced an interesting assortment of tales, myths, law codes, hymns and other literature. Examine excerpts from this literature and discuss the possible influence of these ancient texts on the Bible and ancient Israel.
