Tantur Ecumenical Institute
Tantur Ecumenical Institute was established in 1972 as a place for scholars, pastors and lay people to live for a period of time in the Holy Land in an ecumenical environment. Over the years various educational programs have been developed to meet the spiritual, educational and sabbatical needs for those who want an extended time of study and prayer beyond the confines of normal pilgrimages. Tantur maintains a library of over 80,000 volumes and are uniquely located on 40 acres of land between Jerusalem and Bethlehem. Additional information on programs and history can be found on the Institute’s website.
