Have you ever been to Israel?

Here's why I'm asking. Our college, Parkland, is planning a tour to Israel in March 2011 (March 19-28, to be exact). Personally, I've never had the pleasure of visiting Israel, but folks I know who have been there love it. The tour we're offering will cover a lot of ground, including archeological and Biblical sites, a boat ride on the Sea of Galilee, the Golan Heights, the Dead Sea, Jaffa, Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, and more. We also have arranged to have an Israeli guide who comes with sterling credentials and rave reviews.

What are your must-see sites in Israel?

If you're anywhere near Champaign, Illinois and want to learn more about the Israel tour, come to a free information session on September 16 from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. More info and registering by calling 217/353-2055.
