Sail the Sea of Galilee, pray at the Western Wall of the Temple, and touch the rock of Golgatha. You will connect to Biblical history like never before.

Students can study at Jerusalem University College in a 2-week, 3-week, or semester-long program. The JUC campus sits just outside the walls of the Old City of Jerusalem.
