Israel Alliance International
Legacy Tours.png

From the days of King David to the Macabbean Revolt, from the Roman Occupation to the War of Independence, from the Six Day War to Yom Kippur, from Oslo to the Intifadas, the story of Israel has always been and will always be inseparable from the story of military struggle and war. While the world has always been and will always be divided over this tiny plot of land and those who defend it, few truly understand it.

Israel Alliance International’s LEGACY TOURS create opportunities around Israel and her borders whereby participants will:

  1. LEARN ABOUT THE PAST through a unique, intimate, thoughtful, and honest exploration of Israel’s military history

  2. LEARN ABOUT THE PRESENT to understand, honor, and preserve the legacy of the sacrifice of the IDF who have defended the modern state of Israel over the last 70 years

  3. LEARN ABOUT THE FUTURE to comprehend, prepare for, and engage in the complicated and tumultuous days ahead in the Middle East

LEGACY TOURS stand alone as the most unique tour experience of Israel today. While participants will miss out on some of the traditional tourist sites common among mainstream tourism, you will see a side of Israel and the region that few others ever will. You will interact with retired military leaders and intelligence officers who served in the War of Independence, Yom Kippur, the Six Day War, and Lebanon I and II (sometimes on the very grounds of historic battles they commanded). You will also interact with present day visionaries of the IDF to get an inside look at how the Israeli Army is engaging some of the most significant humanitarian crises and regional challenges of our generation.

LEGACY TOUR participants will also engage with evangelical ministry leaders pioneering in the region and renowned Bible teachers to consider what the Word says about Israel’s past, present, and future.

Lt. Col (reserves) Marco Moreno served in the Israeli Defense Forces’ legendary ‘Humit (504) Intelligence Unit’ which specializes in operating human intelligence agents. In the wake of the outbreak of the Syrian revolution, Moreno was tasked to develop Israel’s response. In a surprising and historic move, Moreno pioneered what is now known today in the IDF as “The Good Neighbor Perspective.” As the architect of Israel’s wide scale effort to provide humanitarian aid to Syrians suffering in the middle of the ongoing Civil War, Moreno is one of the very few people who can tell the inside story of one of the most unique and fascinating relationships in recent history in the Middle East—Israeli Jews, international Christians, and Syrian Muslims.

Upon retirement, Moreno worked to support the Good Neighbor program as a civilian by building strategic relationships with the international Christian community to chart a new path forward together in the Middle East.

He is married with three children and lives in the Upper Galil in the north of Israel.
