Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary is offering a 13-day archaeological study tour to the Holy Land, May 29-June 10, 2021. This is particularly for all WELS/ELS called workers (and spouses), as well as students at the worker-training institutions and WLC. However, lay people are also invited to participate. Participants will work for a week at Kh. ‘Auja el-Foqa, just north of Jericho. They’ll also tour multiples locations in the Holy Land.

The cost is $3494, which covers airfare, hotels, tips, taxes, all meals during the archaeological dig, and breakfasts and dinners during the days of touring.
