Create a Heritage Tour in Israel that’s as unique and inspiring as your congregation or community. 

Your community or synagogue trip to Israel is a curated journey through time and tradition. 

If you will it…

It is no dream to create the perfect Israel trip for your community: no matter what “perfect” looks like to you. This Land has infinitely many stories to tell, like strands in a beautiful tapestry through time.

Ancient Roots

Israel is rich with antique wisdom and memories: from the Forefathers to the Sages; from Jerusalem of Gold to mystical Tzfat; from prophets and pioneers to heroes and martyrs. 

Through the Ages

Rothschild to Rabin, Deganya to the Iron Dome, the Templers to the techies — the recent chapters of Israel’s history have something fascinating to offer anyone interested in politics, society, and culture. 

Local Traditions

The timeless custom of sharing a meal with neighbors and friends is one of the best ways to experience the cultural mosaic that has always characterized Israel.

Private Community and Synagogue Trips to Israel, your way

Whether you’re planning a trip for a congregation, a camp or youth group, a community center or service agency, or any other type of community, we’ll create a fully customized Israel experience built around your group’s unique needs and preferences.

ENGAGING ITINERARIES

We’ll help you create opportunities for meaningful experiences. Your dedicated Tour Specialist is a regional expert who’s not only skilled in building itineraries that are fun and make logical sense but also as invested as you are in helping foster deep connections to Israel. We’re full of great ideas!

WE SPEAK YOUR LANGUAGE

All of our Tour Specialists are native English speakers. That means nothing will get lost in translation, including intangibles such as customer service, timeliness, and courtesy. And because we come from a diverse set of religious and cultural backgrounds, you can be sure we understand where you’re coming from.

WE’RE DETAILS PEOPLE

We believe the perfect itinerary is only the beginning. We’ll choose great hotels that fit your group’s needs and budget, match you with an incredible English-speaking tour guide who’ll bring your itinerary to life, and put together all the other finishing touches to make for an all-around smooth and amazing trip.
