Come to Jerusalem to Celebrate Israel’s 70th Birthday!

Many nations will come and say, “Come, let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, to the temple of the God of Jacob. He will teach us his ways, so that we may walk in his paths.” The law will go out from Zion, the word of the Lord from Jerusalem. (Micah 4:2; NIV)

The March of the Nations plus Conference on May 13 – 15, 2018 will take place on a historic date: the 70th Anniversary of the Founding of the State of Israel. Thousands of Christians from all nations will come to Jerusalem for a special conference. Together with Israelis from all spheres of society, they will walk from the Knesset to Mt. Zion: They honor Holocaust survivors, demonstrate publicly that the nations stand side by side with Israel and say “No!” to anti-Semitism!

Will we see you next year in Jerusalem? – Register now!

Learn more about the worldwide March of Life Movement and the March of the Nations:

The March of Life movement started in Germany in 2007, when descendants of Nazi perpetrators broke the silence about their terrible family history and met with Holocaust survivors and their descendants – the result: healing, friendship and new life! But it did not just stay in Germany: about 40,000 people have taken to the streets in 18 nations and 350 cities with a joint voice for remembrance and reconciliation – against anti-Semitism and for Israel.

Exactly on the 70th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence of the State of Israel, from May 13 -15, 2018, we are bringing the March of Life to Jerusalem – come and join representatives of the Israeli government, Israelis from all spheres of society and Christians from every corner of the earth to honor Holocaust survivors and to make a clear statement of solidarity and friendship with Israel – and against modern anti-Semitism.

You can be part of this to show Israel how many nations stand with her!

    International Convention Center Jerusalem

    The International Convention Center Jerusalem, location of the March of the Nations Conference, was built in 1957 at the same time as the Knesset, the Israeli parliament. To this day it is one of the most famous locations for events and congresses in Israel.

Practical Information

Conference Language and Translation

Conference Language for the event will be English. Translation will be available at a cost into the following languages: German, French, Polish, Russian, Spanish, and Portuguese. More languages in preparation.

Children / Youth

Children and youth are more than welcome for the conference and the March of the Nations. However, we are unable to provide a children’s program. We request all parents to look after their own kids.

Food

At the ICCJ, there are vending places that will sell food and drinks during the breaks. In the area surrounding the ICCJ, there are numerous restaurants and other possibilities to purchase something to eat. During the long lunch and evening breaks, resp., on Monday and Tuesday, the participants, who have booked half board, will have the opportunity to return to their hotels to eat.

Accommodation and Transportation

Each participant is responsible for organizing their own accommodation and transportation. However, we do offer convenient Accommodation Packages including transportation in a variety of price ranges, which you can book right here on the March of the Nations website.

FAQ

Is it possible to participate just in the March of the Nations without the Conference?

For international participants, the conference and March of the Nations have been designed as a single event. As a rule, it is possible to participate just in the March just by itself. Registration for the March of the Nations and the Closing Event at Sultan´s Pool for international participants, however, will only go online in March 2018, if there are still any free spaces available by then. In order to secure your place, we recommend all international participants to register now for the March of the Nations including the conference.

Mobile Phone – Will I be able to use my mobile phone in Israel ?

If you have an international plan, your cell phone may work in Israel, please check with your local provider.

Safety – Is it safe to travel to Israel ?

Every year between 3 and 4 million tourists vacation in Israel. The planes of 90+ airlines wouldn’t fly to Israel if it weren’t safe. Israel is an extremely safe country to visit and tour. We would not encourage tourists to come if we felt they would be in danger.

How can I participate in the March of the Nations, if I am Israeli?

In January 2018, a Hebrew website for Israelis will go online, offering registration for the March of the Nations under special terms for Israelis. Of course, Israelis can also register for the international Christian conference prior to the March itself.

Health – Medecines – Vaccinations

Israel is an ultra-modern country with the world’s highest number of doctors per capita, and a health and hospital system. No vaccinations are required to visit Israel (unless you have recently been in an area where there have been epidemics of yellow fever, cholera or ebola). You can buy most standard over-the-counter equivalent of North American drugs in Israel. You can also bring supplies of your standard prescription drugs with you. (If you need to bring syringes and vials of medicine – bring along a letter from your doctor attesting to your needs, just in case.) If you need to see a doctor in Israel, check with your hotel concierge. Travel insurance (including medical coverage) is always recommended for all foreign travel.)

How can I bring my own group to the March of the Nations and Conference?

Complete the group form, and you will receive a special offer for groups

Internet – Will I have easy internet access ?

Most hotels in Israel have Wi-Fi available for hotel guests at customary prices. Many cafes and restaurants offer a complementary Wi-Fi service. Since September 2013, Tel Aviv offers a citywide free Wi-Fi network which provides 80 free Internet “hot spots” across the city

Water – Can I drink tap water in Israel ?

Absolutely: tap water in Israel is safe and delicious. But, you will also find bottled mineral water everywhere. (It’s important to make sure you drink a lot, especially if you are walking, hiking or exercising during hot weather.)

Taxes – What taxes can I expect to pay Israel ?

The Vat (Value Added Tax) in Israel is 18%. It’s already included in most prices in Israel. VAT is waived for tourists at hotels, tour companies and car rental agencies. Like in Europe and elsewhere, tourists can receive a refund of the VAT they paid on purchases when departing the country, the refund program and the purchase amount in one tax invoice including V.A.T. must exceed ILS. 400.
