About Julian Bender
Julian developed his taste for Middle Eastern hiking as a student and traveler, then worked in clinical research in Philadelphia before returning to Jerusalem to put his outdoor, navigation and mapping skills to use for the Abraham Path. His extensive experience trekking in the region has convinced him that the Middle East has the makings of a world-class outdoor destination, and he hopes his work developing, improving and mapping the Path will help the world discover it. His favorite places on the Abraham Path are the remote desert canyons in the Negev, and the snowy peaks around Mt. Nemrut.
