WASHINGTON – Jonathan Cahn shook up the world with his New York Times bestselling book “The Harbinger.”
The messianic rabbi’s knowledge of Hebrew and his love for Israel make him the ideal tour leader – as some 400 attendees of last November’s WND excursion found out first hand.
Joseph Farah turned the world of communications upside down in 1997 by starting the first independent Internet news organization and website.
His experience as a Christian Arab-American and a former Middle East correspondent provides him with unique insight into the politics and faith dynamics of the region.

Do you have better plans?
“I promise this is going to be the spiritual experience of a lifetime for those who join us,” said Farah. “I know last year’s trip was for me. That’s why we’re doing it again. I know Jonathan feels the same way. I can tell you I have been to Israel many times, but seeing it with Jonathan, and hearing his commentaries at every site, was something I will never forget.”
Cahn said: “There’s nothing like walking the land where the patriarchs, the judges, the kings, the prophets, and the apostles walked. There’s no experience like seeing the Bible come alive in sight and sound. And to walk where Messiah walked, to stand where He stood, to behold the same sites His eyes beheld, is unlike any other experience on Earth.”
About last year’s tour, Cahn added, “People told us that they came with very high expectations – and yet what they experienced in the land surpassed their highest expectations.”
But this won’t just be a repeat performance of an exhilarating trip. In fact, many of last year’s participants have figured this out and are returning for an encore.
“On the coming journey to Israel, we’ll be doing things we’ve never done before, including standing on the actual ground where David fought Goliath in the Valley of Elah, ascending Mount Gilboah, entering to the biblical city of Beersheva, seeing Abraham’s well, entering the Garden of Gethsemane at night and much more,” says Cahn.
“We’ll be worshiping on the shores of the Promised Land, standing on Mount Carmel where Elijah challenged the prophets of Baal, overlooking the Valley of Armageddon, sailing on the Sea of Galilee, worshiping in the same synagogue in which Messiah worshiped in Capernaum, renewing our vows under the olive trees of Cana, standing on the cliff of Nazareth, baptizing in the waters of Jordan, experiencing a Bedouin Tent dinner in the middle of the biblical wilderness, bathing in the Dead Sea, standing on the Mount of Olives, entering the gates of the ancient city of Jerusalem, ascending the Temple Mount, singing Christmas songs over Bethlehem at night, worshiping on the Temple Steps, beholding the Eastern Gate, planting a tree in the soil of the Promised Land and having communion in the Garden Tomb.”
Farah noted that due to the large number of participants last fall, registration was cut off in June. The price per person is below $3,000, assuming double occupancy, and includes round-trip airfare, hotel accommodations and tips for guide, drivers and hotel staff.
“What Jonathan and I heard over and over again from those who came last year was that the tour far exceeded their expectations in every way,” said Farah. “It was moving, spiritually enriching, informative and unforgettable. It was the same for me, even with all my experience in Israel. I know it was the same for Jonathan. That’s why we’re planning to do this annually.”
At every stop on the tour, Rabbi Cahn will share the history and biblical insights of the locations.
Guests will fly Nov. 10 from New York to Tel Aviv. There, a Coral Tour representative will be waiting to greet and assist them. They will meet their guide for the entire trip and drive to the ancient city of Jaffa where the prophet Jonah set sail for Tarshish, the apostle Peter raised Tabitha and where Peter’s vision opened up the Gospel to people from all nations.
There are plenty of opportunities to mix with the tour leaders and other special guests who will accompany the group.
“Going to Israel is not a trip but a pilgrimage, a journey, and adventure,” said Cahn. “And more than any other place, going there will change how one reads the Bible – even change one’s walk and life.”
Cahn is pastor of the Jerusalem Beth Israel Worship Center in Wayne, N.J. He exploded on to the national scene with “The Harbinger,” a book that topped the New York Times bestsellers list from 2012 through 2014. The documentary adaptation, “The Isaiah 9:10 Judgment,” produced by Farah, was the No. 1 faith movie of 2012 and 2013. More of Cahn’s teachings have been produced by WND Films.
Besides founding WND 17 years ago, Farah ran daily newspapers in major markets, launched WND Books and WND Films and is the author or author-collaborator of 13 books, including “Taking America Back” and Rush Limbaugh’s “See, I Told You So.”
