The Israel Ministry of Tourism has just launched an exciting online video competition in advance of Holy Week.

To experience Holy Week in Jerusalem is unique – from the Palm Suday procession (1 April) from the Mount of Olives to the Old City; Holy Thursday and the Washing of the Feet Ceremony; the Good Friday processions along the Via Dolorosa; the Ceremony of the Holy Light in the Church of the Holy Sepulcher (unique and particular to  Jerusalem); processions on Easter Sunday and Easter Monday at Emmaus when many monks and pilgrims walk from Jerusalem to Emmaus-Latrun.  

The idea is simple: Tell the world what’s special about celebrating Easter in the Holy Land – and win a week-long trip for two to actually celebrate the holiday in Israel.

  1. Make a 1 minute clip that ends with the phrase “and that’s why spending Easter in the Holy Land is so special”.
  2. Upload your video to YouTube.com with the title a special Easter in the Holy Land.
  3. Place a link of your YouTube video on Holy Land Pilgrimage’s Facebook page.

And that’s it….

The clip that will gain the most views by March 18th 2012 will win a 1 week tour of the Holy places in the Holy Land, courtesy of the Israel Ministry of Tourism.
