Approximately three and a half years ago, participants in the third edition of Holy Land Dialogues (HLD) were flying back to their respective countries just days before borders around the world closed due to the coronavirus pandemic. Historically, neither distances, nor wars, nor epidemics had halted the flow of pilgrims to the Holy Land, and thus we found ourselves facing an unpredictable situation: the Holy Places were practically deserted, frequented only by the local population.
With the lifting of restrictions and the reopening of borders, the usual hustle and bustle returned to the streets and temples of Jerusalem, Nazareth, Bethlehem… The Holy Land once again became an international mosaic of pilgrims from different places and cultures. Since then, the Saxum International Foundation has been waiting for the moment to launch a new edition of Holy Land Dialogues. Finally, from February 17 to 24, 2024, the fourth edition of HLD will bring together people from all over the world to travel, learn, and share their faith from the places linked to the life of Jesus Christ.
However, those who have participated in this experience are aware that it is much more than a pilgrimage. As its name suggests, Holy Land Dialogues seeks to engage in dialogues about current challenges in an international context that enriches cultural exchange. That is why the innovative concept of HLD is a congress that takes place in Jerusalem and is part of the journey. The theme of this edition will revolve around work as a space for interaction and dialogue to transform society.
In addition, attendees will have the opportunity to participate in other informal meetings with individuals who, from their various fields, promote dialogue and encounter beyond ideological, political, or religious barriers. In the previous edition, HLD talks featured the presence of correspondents, activists, entrepreneurs, and academics, among others.
Holy Land Dialogues is a journey to the roots of our civilization, an encounter with the world, an opportunity for interaction and dialogue, and a chance to share faith. If you are looking for a different way to travel to the Holy Land, we invite you to be part of this unique experience.
