I am really excited and passionate about the ministry of Nazareth village. You can count on my ongoing support by crafting pens from your olive wood. Keep the wood coming for me to use. What a wonderful story and significance of a Olive tree I am 81 yrs. of age and plan to to do this crafting as long as God provides strength for me. Blessings to all the volunteers there. My wife Martha, and I, enjoyed the two occasions that we volunteered at Nazareth village. – in the year 2000 before it was open to the public and later in 2003 after it had opened I really appreciate the vision of the early planners for the village. I believe God is blessing this work.
Really good experience, learnt new stuff.
There couldn’t have been a better experience; nourishing and exciting.
I have visited Israel and get “homesick” for many of the places I visited, including Nazareth Village.
A month after my tour of Israel the Nazareth village comes back to my mind more often than any other place. That is because it is more complete and not obscured by other ruins or like sites where much imagination is needed to picture the days of Jesus.
Including a visit to the Nazareth Village enables a pilgrimage group to capture a much more authentic picture of what life was like in the time of Jesus. I am always impressed by the guides who introduce the Village to us – both in their warmth and welcome, and in their information and communication skills.
Very interesting and unique experience
first visit here. Nice to see how Jesus lived
Very special place and kind people! Thank you
My 2nd visit here. Love to visit again. One of the best places on earth to be at.
Visiting Nazareth Village was one of the highlights of my trip to Israel. The Lord truly blessed me on this trip and I am so thankful I was included on this tour with Gov. Mike Huckabee and Jeff Bennett, et. al. Just to be able to walk where Jesus walked was thrilling and touching spiritually for me. I would love to live in Israel! It is so beautiful!

Very beautiful and helpful visualizing how Jesus grew up. You are providing a wonderful service to pilgrims. God bless.
We visited your village Feb. 23/11. Our group is from Canada. I enjoyed the insight and the presentation of our guide Daniel. He is a true Christian and added so much to our tour of the village. You all have done a wonderful job of displaying the Biblical parables.
I enjoyed the whole Tour,And I thank God that I was able to make it there with the Group.I also thank the guide and the bus driver,they will be blessed.I\’d go again whenever possible. Blessings to you All from CANADA.
I have brought 6 congregational groups to the Village, and for many it is the highlight of their Holy Land tour!

An amazing and throat-catching experience, thank you so much for your imagination in bringing Scripture to life.

A wonderful experience, lots to see brings the Bible to life. Not to be missed. Thank you, God bless you all.
I loved it here and will praise the Lord for bringing me here.
Very informative. We enjoyed our time here!
It is a privilege to visit Nazareth Village .To stand under the olive trees or watch Hanna and Yousef demonstrate how weaving and carpentry would have been done is an experience not to be missed. Thank you Daniel. and all. Looking forward to seeing you in October. ….
To my surprise, our time in the Nazareth Village proved to be one of our guests’ favorite stops in the Galilee. The village transported us back two thousand years and gave us a taste of the first century in a place where significant events actually occurred.
The tour guide we had made the story of Jesus so alive is this authentic setting. Definitely our favorite spot on our tour of Israel. To experience a meal here in the 1st century setting is awesome.
One of our highlights of the tour it is a must visit,take you back to the way JEsus saw it shalom
I also wish to come for the pilgrimage.
A truly wonderful experience of the “jesus story”. The ambience helps us to understand the life and times of Jesus giving us insights into the parables of life that Jesus used to explain the Kingdom. We had a truly wonderful guide Miriam…and we left the village with greater appreciation for our faith and for the Jesus story.
While visiting the Nazareth Village I bought a beautiful Jesus doll with the clothes on it weaved by the lady doing the weaving a the village. I would like to by several of these dolls for my family and friend for their children. My grandson love this baby Jesus doll and we want to share this wonderful doll with many others. I bought this doll in the gift shop at the Nazareth Village.
When we visited your village during September just before the Sukkot I was amazed. When we sat down at the table and was served it was such a go back in history experience. When I met the shepherd I was very emotional, I noticed his feet and just had a thought that maybe Jesus feet also had se same appearance because of the walking or maybe even worse. He was so thankful of the water that the young girl brought to him.
Thank you so much for giving us the opportunity to experience the life that Jesus could maybe lived.
JEHOVA,los bendiga muchisimo soy de Ecuador estuve agosto 2015 que lugar tan lindo ,muy buena la explicacion de la guia Brasileña, aunque el tiempo fue corto de mi viaje pude disfrutarlo ahora le pido a,PAPITO DIOS me permita ir este año 2016 que viene con mis hermanos alla.ISRAEL es la tierra del eterno resplandor.EL conceda muchisima paz a su pais.SHALOM
We loved being part of the group led by Maria Bathish on17th October. It is still fresh in my mind, as I hear Gospel stories.The watchtower, the shepherd’s fold, the synagogue and the description of the olive pressing stand out in my memory. But it was superb way to include people in telling an amazing story of that part of the town. God Bless and keep you,
We visited In September 2016 with a group led by Paul Keeys (Walk Through the Bible). For me it was the highlight of my visit to Israel. The village brought to life how things were in the days when Jesus lived. Thanks you.
We visited Nazareth Biblical Village before we went to the ICEJ Feast of Tabernacles. It was a wonderfully educational time with you all and a great visit to your shop. We will come back again Lord Sending us back to Israel again.
All our Love and Prayers

Shalom, Shalom, Shalom.
All our love and Prayers

Nazereth Village, like the other Biblical sites, bridges the 2000 year span of time, making the events surrounding our Lord so real and vivid. But my favorite place of all was the Village. What made it so unique and memorable was the brief words and teachings at each site by a staff member, Maria, who led our tour, One example, among others, is some comments she made at a Nazereth olive press site that were so poignant, some of us had to step outside for a moment. This surprised me and was most unexpected. This was not the standard tourist speeches one might expect. For many of us this made the Village one of our most favorite sites on our whole 10 day tour! Please feel free to use my email for anyone to contact me if they want a recommendation on whether or not they should include Nazereth Village in their Holy Land tour.
May God bless your organization for the fine work you are doing!
We visited Nazareth village May 2016…
What a Blessing!!! I’m so happy our tour guide
Micky took us… This is a must see!!!
What a blessing to experience the times and the place where Yeshua grew up! it is important to preserve this little village in the biblical times in a place surrounded by a “different world” . 05/20/2016.
everything about the VILLAGE was so real and Natural. I Loved it all especially when they all got together to have a meal. I Love everything to do with our Lord and Saviour.
I had fun. The food was satisfactory though.
hermosa nuestra experiencia en Nazareth, fue una bendición estar allí. Les mandamos desde Argentina nuestro cariño y deseos de seguir siempre mostrando al mundo que Nuestro Señor se humano mostrando Su Amor a cada uno de nosotros, murió y resucitó Y ahora esta en la alturas esperando el día Glorioso de su Pronta Venida.
We filmed a biblical movie at the site and hope to do the sequel there soon. The staff was so helpful. Pastor Jim Phillips
Multumesc Domnului pentru onoarea si bucuria de a fi parte a acestui turneu si ma bucur mult ca am putut fi de folos cantand in Sing Gloria saptamana trecuta !!! A fost o experienta deosebita si de neuitat !! A meritat tot efortul si cheltuiala si abia astept sa mai ajung la Nazareth Village !!!! Multumum mult Daniel pentru ca ai fost ghidul nostru pe taramul Tarii Sfinte !!! Sarbatori pline de bucuria nasterii lui Cristos in inimile noastre, alaturi de cei dragi, va doresc tuturor !!!!
It was fourth time in village last week. Second time the guide was Natanael – he is great! Superthanks to him. I have learned new things everytime. Be blessed Natanael and God bless the Village! Ari from Finland
En helt makalös upplevelse. Över hela byn vilade en sällsam Frid och guiden vi hade var enastående. Hon berättade med inlevelse och charm. Förklarade tydligt när vi ställde frågor och skrattade med oss när något ändå missförstods. I synagogan hade hon sådant allvar i rösten att det kändes nästan som om Jesus själv hade kunnat stå där. Byborna gjorde byn verkligen levande och till och med fåren som följde herdens röst hade något att berätta. En helt fantastisk vistelse som man absolut inte får missa när man besöker Nazareth.
Our family came through Nazareth Village last summer and it was the highlight of our entire time in Israel. Our boys (ages 10, 13 and 15) had so much fun learning, seeing, touching and smelling life in the first century….thanks for making history and faith come alive!
I came a day visit you on the 26th of May I am interested in on becoming a partner on a monthly basis also I would like personalized engraving as a permanent part of the building walk. Can you inform me in doing so please. God bless you.
We were in Israel 16 days, and Nazareth Village was my 3rd favorite of all – after the Garden Tomb and the Western Wall. Our guide Nathan was outstanding. I learned a lot about Jesus’ life and the Bible. Of particular remembrance is the “netzer” out of the root of Jesse, the wine press, Gat Shmanim (Gethsemane), the tomb, the vineyard and especially the carpenter.
Wir waren als Kirchengemeinde am 12. Oktober im Nazaret Village.
Dort hatten wir eine tolle Führung mit einer sehr netten und kompetenten Begleiterin.
Verkündigung zum Anfassen und Erleben!
Ich kann es jeder Gruppe nur empfehlen!
Pfarrer Michael Zlamal
Nous avons eu le privilège de visiter le village reconstitué, et ce fut une expérience inoubliable. Le guide a su nous retransmettre la relation entre la vie quotidienne et les paroles de Jésus. Nous avons été émus de voir la tisserande sauter de joie en apprenant que nous étions des chrétiens nés de nouveau. Que vous puissiez être encouragés dans votre travail.
We will be volunteering in Nazareth from 9-12pm
so I believe we could eat first then take the tour? or what do you suggest?
A truly wonderful experience enjoyed by all our group in May 2018. The tour was brought alive to us by the local guide Albert who spoke perfect English and clearly knows the Lord Jesus as his own personal Saviour.
Thank you so much Albert
I visited Nazareth Village last week, May 15, 2018. Enjoyed it tremendously and would encourage anyone in the area to visit. Such a blessing !
Visited Nazerath village as part of a tour with DayOne ministries. A lovely experience and with a lovely guide. Particular thanks to Jospehythe carpenter who made my day by giving me a small piece of olive wood for my dad who loves whittling wood. He was very happy too! A ‘must’ for anyone visiting Israel as it is like going back to biblical days.
