Gaza Envelope Tour from Jerusalem: Stories of Resilience and Hope

Join us on an enlightening day tour that delves into the complex history of the events of October 7th, involving the Gaza Strip and its surroundings. This tour is designed to offer participants a comprehensive understanding of the historical context leading up to this date, the events of October 7th itself, and, most importantly, the themes of rebirth, human connection, and hope. This tour is not about recounting horrors; it’s about understanding and engaging with the communities that have experienced these events firsthand.

The tour begins at Netiv HaAsara, a Moshav located at the northern border with the Gaza Strip. Here, our guide will provide a historical overview of the area and discuss the significant events of October 7th. You will explore the Netiv Ha’asara visitor’s center, followed by a visit to the Path of Peace Mosaic art project. Following the visit to the art project, you will tour the border area and then proceed to Kibbutz Alumim. At the kibbutz, a local resident will share personal stories from October 7th and discuss the community’s efforts to rebuild and move forward. You will have the opportunity to enjoy a traditional kibbutz lunch in the communal dining hall, which is a testament to the community’s resilience and spirit.

The journey continues to the Nova Music Festival site, where you will witness what occurred during the event and have a moment to honour the victims in a reflective setting. Subsequently, the tour includes a stop at an impactful site, the cemetery of vehicles used during the Nova event, symbolizing the losses endured but also the unyielding human spirit.

Before concluding the tour, we visit the Trauma Coalition in Sderot. Here, you will gain insights into the long-term impact of living under threat and the forward-looking initiatives aimed at rehabilitation and hope. This visit underscores our commitment not merely to recount tales of the past but to actively participate in ongoing recovery efforts.

Each stop in our tour involves direct payment at the location, which supports the local residents directly. This approach ensures that our engagement is meaningful and contributes positively to the communities we visit. By engaging directly with local voices and perspectives, we aim to promote a deeper comprehension of the area’s historical and current realities on both sides of the border. We are committed to supporting local rehabilitation efforts and providing a platform for authentic stories that emphasize hope and positive action. In doing so, we believe that our approach to responsible tourism can contribute to ongoing recovery and mutual understanding.

Join us to witness, see, and listen to the stories of resilience and hope that define this region.
