Proudly Siraj Center for Holy Land Studies and the Alternative Tourism group
(ATG) announce re inaugurating the Nativity Trail, from Nazareth to Bethlehem
in 2009.

Now, 2000 years later, the modern-day city of Bethlehem - home of the
Millennium - invites you to make a symbolic and historic journey by walking
Palestine's Nativity Trail.

The carefully researched route-a 11-day journey is the first leg of the new
Palestine Trail.

Meeting the People Walking the Nativity Trail will be an opportunity to meet a
diverse range of people: Franciscan priests on Mount Tabor, Muslim clerics at
village mosques, Greek Orthodox monks in desert monasteries, hillside farmers
and their families, small-town shopkeepers and craftspeople, Bedouin shepherds
watering their flocks at ancient cisterns, and many more interesting people.

The Nativity Trail is an opportunity to understand the Geopolitical situation
in the Holy land by observing it while walking through the valleys and
mountains of Palestine. It give participants the chance to have a first hand
experience of the situation on the ground.

The Nativity trial, not just a journey, it is a journey of dialogue, openness
and interaction with new people.

Participants will be able to understand the flora and Fauna of Palestine and
the bible, and will be able to embrace the culture that lasted in Palestine for
thousands of years.
