Our Response to COVID-19
Passages is committed to our mission to introduce the next generation of Christian leaders to Israel with safety and public health in mind, especially in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. We appreciate all members participating in our program for their patience and willingness to work with new information and incomplete answers as the Passages team works diligently with all of our travel and tour partners to stay on top of any developments that arise coming from official government and public health sources from both the United States and Israel.
Passages Health Compact
The Passages Health Compact is a required agreement that all members participating in the Passages program must sign. The compact outlines the logistical and public health requirements of traveling in light of COVID-19 as well as a pledge to be mindful, respectful, and responsible for oneself and all others whom you will be traveling and interacting with on a Passages trip.
Passages Updates is our main resource that disseminates information regarding the status of our trips and participants in the event of emergencies or other miscellaneous developments occurring that could affect the program. All COVID-19 related updates will also be published on this page.
