Expert insight and advice from our blog


We all know that Israel is a great destination for religious pilgrims or history fans, but it’s also aperfect country for family holidays! While adults can enjoy the landscapes and classic architecture, there’s also plenty of stuff to do that will keep the kids entertained. From exploring ruins to climbing and playing and not forgetting a good beach day for the whole family for a nice break! To make the most of your family time, here are 12 things to do in Israel with kids. Don’t forget your camera!

Bar and Bat Mitzvahs in Israel

The splendor and pomp of Bar and Bat Mitzvah celebrations in North America are a wonderful testament to the prosperity of the Jewish community. But there is an entirely different joy to be had in celebrating a young man or woman’s coming of age in the Jewish homeland.

Family Bonding Benefits Offered by Jewish Heritage Family Tours

As parents, we do our best to show our children the world, educate them and create experiences they won’t forget. Any family vacation is a bonding opportunity. But giving your children the opportunity to see a city in a different way, learn about their roots first hand on a Jewish heritage family tour and connecting as a family through this experience is nothing short of truly special. What will such a unique opportunity offer?

Educational travel for kids

Jewish tradition teaches us that we must instill in our children the lesson of giving to our community and those around us in need. It’s a very basic part of what it means to be Jewish and an important part of a helping create a strong Jewish identity for your kids. In today’s world of instant gratification and quick fixes, it’s hard to really shock our kids into being passionate about what they have and what they can give. It’s rare to find the opportunity in the daily hustle and bustle to take the time as a family to show our appreciation. That’s why I like to combine my family vacation with an extra component of educational travel for kids, in particular the lesson of Tikun Olam – the Jewish acts of kindness designed to repair and protect our world.
