Jewish Family Trips to Israel

Whether coming to Israel to celebrate a child becoming a bar or bat mitzvah or simply looking to plan a meaningful family vacation, a trip to Israel can be an incredible event for a Jewish family. Jews from all over the world come to Israel to explore their Jewish heritage at the many historical sites around the country including the ruins of the First and Second Temple in Jerusalem, the mountain fortress of Masada, and more.

Of course, there’s more to discover than ancient historical sites! Read on for some inspiration.

The story of modern Israel

The Jewish connection to this land begins with the biblical forefathers, but for many Jewish families, the story of the modern state of Israel can be just as compelling. From the early pioneers and the underground resistance to the birth of the state and later emergence as a high-tech powerhouse, there are countless ways to explore the Jewish Homeland from a more recent perspective. Look out over Israel’s borders with Lebanon and Syria, visit the first kibbutz, discover the secrets of Israel’s agricultural success, and more!

Connecting to people and culture

A family trip to Israel is a wonderful way to learn about the many flavors of Jewish life in Israel. Explore the “fruit salad” of Jewish cultures that have come together from all over the world: Eastern and Central Europe, Northern Africa, Ethiopia, the Levant, Iran, Iraq, the Arabian Peninsula, Central Asia, and far beyond! From cuisine and art to daily cultural and religious practice, exploring the many different expressions of Judaism is an amazing way to connect to your own Jewish heritage.

Engaging the kids

Anyone who has ever traveled with their kids knows the challenge of balancing a kid-friendly trip with an itinerary that the grown-ups also find captivating and enriching. Fortunately, Israel is full of interactive and engaging sites that visitors of all ages can enjoy while exploring their heritage.

Of course, having an amazing tour guide is a must for touring Israel with kids. A private tour guide who loves guiding for families with kids knows just how to put historical and cultural sites in context so that everyone can relate and get something valuable out of their visit.
