Deaf Tour of Israel - Interpreted in ASL

March 8-19, 2021

Hosted by SWM – Jon and Diane Barr*

We are looking forward to again hosting a Deaf tour of Israel in March, 2021. We hope you can go with us. We have worked with our tour guide so we can present all information clearly and slowly. You will have time to see the sites AND learn the information. This trip will focus on learning about Bible places and Bible events. We will discuss Bible verses and the events that happened in each place we visit. We will also learn about the many people who have lived in Israel, their ways of building, and more. Deaf people please join us for this special Deaf Tour of Israel in 2021. – Jon and Diane Barr, SWM
