To prepare for the June 2019 trip to Israel, Scholars and Team Captains are participating in the training program, "Exploring the Abrahamic Faiths in the Holy Land."  

Veteran Team Captain and State of Illinois Teacher of the Year runner-up John Bierbaum will be leading the interactive sessions on the history of Jerusalem.

Veteran Team Captain Sheheryar Muftee invited the Project to his new Islamic Center for an experiential overview of the Islamic faith, the importance of Jerusalem to Muslims and the Palestinian conflict.

In December, Scholars explored Christianity with Pastor Debbie Reece of Cavalry United Methodist Church.

In January, we will explore Judaism with Rabbi Rebecca Dubowe of the Moses Montefiore Temple.

We will also enjoy an afternoon at the Princess Theatre, taking in a movie that speaks to this year's theme.
