Why Shoresh Tours?

Shoresh has brought Christians from around the world on biblical study tours of Israel for more than 31 years. And we have achieved many "firsts" in our long history:

  • We were the first tour operator to offer evangelical study tours in Israel
  • We were the first to have Messianic guides
  • We were the first to offer teaching on the Jewish roots of the Christian faith.

All of our office staff and guides are committed Christian/Messianic followers of Jesus and Shoresh is the only tour operator that does special guide training from a believer’s perspective. The Shoresh staff pray regularly for every tour from inception until the group is safely on the plane home.

God has been wonderfully faithful in blessing our groups and it's the personalised service with care and flexibility Shoresh offers that makes all the difference. What is more, because Shoresh is a ministry, we donate most of our profits to other local ministries.

Please get in touch, and we’ll begin planning your tour.
