SITE OF JESUS' BAPTISM NOW OPEN DAILY TO VISITORS AND PILGRIMS

After much investment in infrastructure to improve the spiritual experience and physical comfort of tourists and pilgrims, the Qasr el Yahud baptism site on the River Jordan, known as the place of Jesus' baptism, is now open daily to the public. Recognized since the 4th century as the site of the baptism of Jesus by John the Baptist, Qasr el Yahud is considered the third most important site for Christian pilgrims to the Holy Land (after the Church of the Holy Sepulcher in Jerusalem and the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem). Israel's Ministry of Tourism, among others, has invested about $2.3 million in renovating and upgrading the site. Wooden ramps into the Jordan River now allow pilgrims easy and comfortable access to the waters for baptism; shaded areas have been erected for prayer sessions; and bathroom, shower and parking facilities have been upgraded. The site is also wheelchair-accessible.

Testimonials from our Travelers

Kobi,

We all returned to the states safely, but we returned changed. Our time in Israel was educational, inspirational, and rewarding. I attribute most of that to you. Thank you so much for your expertise and for your approachable manner. I feel that I have made a new lifelong friend.

I have contacted Sara at Jerusalem Tours and tentatively booked a spot for late October 2013. I requested you as our guide if you are available at that time. Maybe we will see you here in the states before that trip.

Have a wonderful holiday season. I wish the best to you, your fiancee, and your family.

God Bless,
Dr. Stephen C. Rice
