Bethlehem: From King David’s Well to the Bar Kochba Revolt

Hosted By: Volunteers for Israel (VFI)

Join Volunteers for Israel on a tour of the Bethlehem about which we don’t usually hear! We’ll look for the footprints of the great biblical king, David and see the recently restored ancient mosaics in one of the greatest churches in the world. We will get to know some of the city’s main attractions, meet some residents, talk about history and politics, and visit Tel Batir – the last stronghold of the Bar Kochba revolt along with nearby spring, terraces, and a Roman pool – which are declared as a UNESCO site.

Volunteers for Israel (VFI)

Volunteers for Israel (VFI) is the only American organization that creates opportunities for civilian volunteers to serve on Israeli Defence Force bases. VFI partners with Israeli military and civilian organizations that enable volunteers to work side-by-side with Israel's soldiers, providing non-combat support to help maintain the readiness of the IDF to defend Israel. VFI enables the IDF to allocate more of its manpower and finances to military tasks, boosts morale within the IDF, and strengthens personal connections to Israel.
