Unto the members of the Knowne Worlde, the Incipient Shire of Ma’ale Giborim extends an invitation to All and Sundry to a most unique event; a ten-day trip to the Holy Land of Israel, whereupon you will visit ruins, excavations, sites and buildings spanning a Biblical to Ottoman timeline.
Shop in the Arab Shuk in the Old City of Jerusalem, visit the ancient monasteries scattered throughout the north and west, enjoy horseback riding near the Horns of Hittim and partake in a feast in a Crusader castle. Wade in the healing waters of the Dead Sea, swim in the Sea of Galilee and stroll along the beaches of the Mediterranean Sea.
