Catholic Tours to Bethlehem from Tel Aviv
Where It All HappenedAccording to an ancient Hebrew saying, “a man is the fruit of his home’s landscapes.” The Christ is no mere man, of course, but as God sent His only begotten son to walk amongst us, we should feel blessed for having the opportunity to know Him and walk in his footsteps, as well as witnessing with our own eyes the environment in which He was born. Though the spiritual distance could not be greater, the actual distance between Tel Aviv and Bethlehem is quite manageable, which makes it an ideal tour for any Catholic that wants to combine a visit in the lively metropolis with a spiritual experience.
