APN 2016 Israel Study Tour


Americans for Peace Now

Reserve your space on Americans for Peace Now's Israel Study Tour, November 12 - November 17, 2016.

Thank you for your interest in APN's 2016 Study Tour to Israel! Registration in now open, with instructions below on how to lock in your participation.

Several special elements will be part of this specific trip. Coming only days after a new US President is elected, the Study Tour will provide you with unique insight into how Israelis and Palestinians perceive the election results, and how they believe the US general elections might impact the conflict and prospects for its resolution.

As always, the focus of the tour will be on the two societies, Israeli and Palestinian, and on the state of the conflict between them. In addition, this year's tour will feature an added emphasis on the threats that Israel faces across its borders, north and south, and will therefore involve more travel than in past years.

Professor Mark Rosenblum, APN's founder and Middle East scholar, will lead the tour with his remarkable combination of knowledge, experience, and humor. In addition to his years of study and activism on the Israel-Palestinian conflict, Mark has for several years now been leading groups of student scholars on trips to various Arab countries.

"I find it stimulating to travel with the kind of folks who are always on the APN study trips, and it is motivating to meet and talk to Israeli Jews and Palestinians whose values I share. It renews my faith in Israel's future."

Going on the APN Study Tour "was an amazing experience from every angle...an event of a lifetime. It gave me hope that there is still very much a chance for peace between Israelis and Palestinians."
