Israel: Jewish Heritage in Depth
Our Jewish Heritage In-Depth Israel Tours are designed to engage participants from a Jewish perspective – exploring the historical, political, and religious sites and institutions that make Israel such a unique destination.
Our Guide was without question, one of the highlights of our journey through Israel. His native background coupled with his connections to the United States allowedhim to communicate impeccably. His roots in Jerusalem shows, as he escorts thru the city’s walls engaging “friendly hello’s” from the network of friends he’s acquired over his years. – Tracy W.
Our classic, cross-cultural tour of Israel. With several itineraries to choose from, these tours offer participants a sense of inspiration – from the Tomb of King David at Mt. Zion in Jerusalem, to the vista of the Bahai Temple Gardens atop Haifa’s Mt. Carmel, to Capernaum nestled between the foothills of the Galilee overlooking the Sea of Galilee.

The itinerary was great – varied and full of stimulating information, captivating activities, and moving events, such as planting trees and dedicating them to the memory of my husband (their father and grandfather). Arriving at sunset, on the Mount of Olives, overlooking the Old City, saying the bruchas over the challah and wine, followed by my children and grandchildren singing “Jerusalem of Gold.” …it was hard to stem the flow of emotions. – Anita P.

The journey thru Israel was just unbelievable. It was a trip of a lifetime and largely due to our guide Noam. What a personality! He was extremely knowledgeable about his country but also history. Amazing. The Rabbi was also a wonderful person to arrange this gem and all the people we were with were beautiful, each in their own way. Thanks to Ayelet Tours for this fantastic journey and for all your help and quick responses to all our questions prior to the trip. – Sherwin & Charlotte B.

Our Guide was outstanding. All participants just loved the depth of his knowledge about the history of not only Israel and Hadassah, but of the whole region and the current political climate. Each day he tied together the sights we were seeing with the history. His knowledge of Hadassah and our contribution to building the State is amazing. I thought I knew a lot, but I learned many new things from him. – Sandy S.
