Tourism Minister Launches pilgrimage to Israel
The Minister of Tourism, Culture and Creative Arts, Elizabeth Ofosu-Agyare, has launched One People Travels, a tour operating agency which is organising a nine-day pilgrimage to Israel to enhance the faith of Christians in Accra.
The pilgrimage to Israel which is a spiritual journey would enable Christians to trace the footsteps of Jesus Christ.
Speaking at the launch, the tourism minister expressed the hope that after Christians had returned from their pilgrimage to Israel, they would also cultivate the habit of visiting some tourist attractions in Ghana.
She said Ghana was a preferred tourism destination, given its peculiar location in the centre of the world. She therefore advised One People Travels to endeavour to fulfil all the promises it had made and also ensure that there were no hidden costs in the package it offered.
The Israeli Ambassador to Ghana, Sharon Bar Li, on her part said pilgrimage was a pure and spiritual leapfrog that helped to reinforce one’s faith, adding that Israel is an island of safety and stability in the Middle East, and invited Ghanaian pilgrims to her country.
The nine-day pilgrimage to Israel starts from November 2013, to January 2014. The all-inclusive package of $2,500 comprises flight, airport taxes, visas, accommodation, meals, entrance fees to all sites, transportation in Israel, assistance by licensed tour guides and insurance materials.
