Plans are now in full swing for the observance of the 1979 Feast of Tabernacles in JERUSALEM! It will be the first time the city has been an official Festival site.

According to Sherwin McMichael, director of the Festival Office, the 12-day tour of Jerusalem will include visits to such historical sites as the Mount of Olives, Golgotha, the Garden Tomb, Bethlehem, Liberty Bell Park, Hebrew University, and the Dead Sea. The tour is limited to 300 people because of the number of housing accommodations available at that time of year. Reservations are on a first-come, first-served basis.

Mr. McMichael also pointed out that morning and afternoon services will be held on the two annual Sabbaths, along with special Bible Studies at the various tour sites to emphasize their relevance to history and prophecy.

Tour rates will range from $1,039 to $1,119 for economy, depending on point of departure, or from $1,239 to $1,399 for standard rates. (Low figures are from New York, N.Y.; high from Los Angeles, Calif.) For a fully detailed brochure outlining the itinerary, transportation, accommodations and other pertinent information, all interested parties should consult their Festival adviser.
