Israel Tours
For Jewish Temples and their Rabbis

It is very common for a Rabbi to bring with him some of his congregants on Israel Tours.

These tours can be arranged as per the request of the Rabbi and his assistants. Here I am presenting a sample tour that covers all of Israel from north to south.

It can be changed in any way required. In this itinerary we plan an arrival on Friday to start the tour with a visit to the Western Wall Jerusalem.

The most sacred and revered place in Judaism is the
Kotel in Jerusalem

We have allotted a couple of days in Eilat for free activities. You may want to do what most of the tourists do in Eilat, sunbath and swim or just relax and enjoy the cool waters of Eilat while you see Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Egypt and Israel at once. Or you may want to experience many of the activities that Eilat provides.

There is a possibility to take a tour to the neighboring country of Jordan and visit the ancient Nabataean city of Petra .
