Touching the ancient stones, listening to the pulse of the living desert, savoring the local color and flavor—every experience is a multi-sensory trip through time and tradition.

We want to put unforgettable finishing touches on your Israel tour and find the perfect ways to take your trip to the next level. Whether earth, sea, or sky, we can take you further: new perspectives, uniquely you.

Magical Moments

Our Details-Matter philosophy translates everyday occasions into once-in-a-lifetime experiences. We’re never satisfied with good enough—we’ll always be working to add a little magic into your Israel trip.

Family Fun

We know all kinds of ways to bring your family together: from a scavenger hunt or hummus-making competition to an overnight army adventure in the desert, or anything in between.

The options for Bar Mitzvah venues in Israel are literally endless. We’ll help you choose the perfect spot for your ceremony: whether traditional or off-the-beaten-track, whatever your must-haves (seating for guests, air conditioning, ambiance, nature…). We’ll be your on-site event coordinator.

MEALS & RECEPTIONS

Simple kiddush or brunch? Cocktail reception or celebratory meal? It’s hard enough planning a special event in your local community, let alone halfway across the globe! Let us help you plan the celebration that’s perfect for you and your guests. We’ll handle all the details.

CELEBRATORY ACTIVITIES

We want to help you keep the celebration going. Your Israel tour may revolve around your son’s Bar Mitzvah, but that doesn’t mean you can’t get the most out of every other day on your tour! Enjoy every moment with the perfect activities for your whole family. ATVing, climbing & rappelling, rafting, culinary adventures, spa days, and more!

COMMEMORATE YOUR WAY

Mark the occasion in a way that reflects your personality and your values. Want to volunteer with a local service agency? Plant a tree? Host a dinner for lone soldiers? Participate in the Yad Vashem Bar Mitzvah Twinning Program? Engage in a Torah study or a Kabbalah workshop? We’d love to help you get the most out of your tour.

After the Bar Mitzvah

Just because throwing a grand reception with 200 of your son’s closest friends and family members may not be on the agenda for your family’s Bar Mitzvah Tour in Israel, that doesn’t mean that the party has to stop as soon as the Torah scroll gets closed. Celebrating your son’s Bar Mitzvah in Israel can
