Multnomah University was selected to participate in a new program called Passages Israel, which enabled 40 MU students to tour Israel for 10 days this summer.
Sponsored by the Philos Project and the Museum of the Bible Foundation, Passages points students to the roots of their biblical faith and introduces them to the complex landscape of modern Israel, with the goal of building bridges of understanding and friendship between our two countries.
Multnomah students enjoyed visiting famous biblical sites and hearing lectures from a diverse set of speakers and locals, who assisted them in understanding Israeli culture, government and economy, as well as the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
Upon their return, participants had opportunities to build upon their trip experiences by engaging in further leadership training, with an end goal of being an informed voice for both their Christian faith and for Israel.
