Americans for Peace Now is organizing a small group study tour to Israel, which will take place November 2nd through the 7th, 2013. The group will be led by APN founder and Middle East policy expert, Professor Mark Rosenblum. Participants will explore the "real" Israel -- the one behind the headlines, which tourists typically don't see.

Join us as we:


  • Listen to policy makers and policy shapers with diverse views --members of the government, academics, pollsters, politicians and pundits of all stripes who shape public life in Israel and comment on it.
  • See settlement construction activity in the West Bank with Hagit Ofran, Director of Peace Now's renowned Settlement Watch Project.
  • Tour Jerusalem and view how settlement planning and building threatens to close the window on the two-state solution.
  • Visit Ramallah to meet senior Palestinian leaders and political activists with diverse views.
  • Meet with Israeli and Palestinian peace activists who are determined to keep up the struggle for a two-state solution.
  • Visit the separation barrier to view how it affects the everyday lives of Palestinians and Israelis.
  • Visit cultural, religious and national sites that are central to the collective narratives of Israelis and Palestinians.
