Israel is now sealing their borders in an effort to stop the spread of Coronavirus.
The Nations’ 9av team wants to reassure you that the Nations’ 9th of av event is not cancelled. We do not know how long this situation will go on.
We do have a back up plan in place in case travel is still restricted this summer.
What can we do RIGHT NOW to BLESS Israel and the Jewish people?
Plant a seed of faith by putting $50.00 down on your registration for this trip?
Join with us in showing your good faith and intention to go on the Nations 9th of Av trip scheduled for July 28-Aug 6th.
If travel restrictions are not lifted, then the $50.00 registration fee will be donated to our friends at Lipkin Tours as a blessing.
This event will gather Christians together to repent for atrocities committed by Christians against Jews throughout history. We will gather during the 24 hours of the 9th of Av in 2020 to pray. This will be followed up with day trips into biblical Judea and Samaria where we will be creating an environment for Christians to build relationships with Jews, so that walls from the centuries can come down and bridges of friendship and fellowship can be built. In doing this, we will "embrace the past to transform the future of Christian-Jewish relationships". Don't miss this life changing trip!
PLEASE NOTE: This event is not about the evangelization of Jews. The vision God put forth in Zech 8:23 is not about resolving differences in beliefs, but about finding productive ways to “walk together”.

TRAVEL ADVISORY REGARDING CORONAVIRUS
There has been some concern about the impact of the Coronavirus on the Nations’ 9th of Av gathering in Jerusalem. As of early March, air travel from the United States to Israel is not restricted, although Israel has restricted travel from certain countries, and has prohibited international conferences. We expect that these restrictions will be lifted before the Nations’ 9th of Av conference and tour begins on July 28, but should the restrictions still be in place, there is a full refund for the tour (not for airline tickets), minus a small processing fee. We encourage everyone to follow these best practices:
