This is a message received on 8 Sept 2017, 10am, from Scottish Friends of Palestine:
Grab this chance to see Palestine as it really is – join the next ZYARA – your ‘personal journey of discovery’ (Zyara website)
Zyara have a few places left on their visit to Palestine, 19 November to 3 December 2017
‘ZYARA are a small group of ordinary people who believe in seeing [Palestine] as it is.’ (Zyara website)
They organise a Zyara (visit) to Palestine once or twice a year, taking a maximum of 30 people along to volunteer in small projects and tour the country, meet grass roots organisations and people of all walks of life. Visitors enjoy the food, the landscape, and the company of ordinary people living under occupation.
Zyara have a few places left on their visit to Palestine, from 19 November to 3 December 2017.
You will travel to Jerusalem, Nazareth, Bethlehem, Nablus, Hebron, Haifa and other towns and cities. You will meet inspiring people, and tour old cities, visiting schools and universities. You will dine in authentic restaurants and bars. You will volunteer with local communities.
The activity-packed journey, from 19 November to 3 December 2017, will leave you with unforgettable memories.
Zyara have a few places left on their visit to Palestine, 19 November to 3 December 2017 and hope you can join them in this journey.
