Judaism and Jews

Tours which focus on Jewish sites. Israel is the holiest place in the world for Judaism, and the country of the Jewish nation, the scene of the Biblical events and central events in the life of the key figures in Judaism. In Israel you'll find the four holiest cities to Judaism – Jerusalem, Hebron, Safed and Tiberias. The Temple in Jerusalem was a place of Jewish pilgrimage, and the Western Wall is its only remains, and Mishna and Talmud were written in Galilee. We'll find here many historical synagogues, tombs of Rabbis and Biblical figures, remains of ancient synagogues, impressive modern synagogues, and of course the history of the Jewish nation. 

  • The 20th century in Galilee was marked by the revival of Jewish presence in the land of Israel, and the struggle which led to Israel's independence. Neighborhoods and cities, sites and museums show us the events which were part of this fascinating history. 

  • Safed, one of the four holy cities of Judaism, is known as a spiritual and Kaballic center, with beautiful views and remains of a big Crusader center of the Templars. The story of battles over Safed during the War of Independence is one of the most interesting stories of that war.  

  • Several of the important sites related to the revival of the Jewish presence in the Holy Land are located in the center of the country, and have a variety of fascinating sites in them: Rishon LeZion, one of the first modern settlements in Israel, and now one of its biggest cities, with

  • A tour which would give you a taste of the beautiful and the special places in Galilee – breathtaking viewpoints and hikes in the nature, crusaders castles, ancient synagogues, Roman temples, villages and the religious sites of the Druze, food, wine and olive oil.

  • Many of the battles and important strategic events during the wars of Israel (1973, 1967, 1948 and before that), took place at north of the Golan and the Finger of Galilee.

  • The Druze religion is represented in several towns in the north of Israel, and several are worth visiting: Daliyat Al Carmel near Haifa, with a popular market and great views of the green Carmel mountain; Pki'in, with an authentic olive press, a synagogue which continues a history of Je

  • Edmund Rothschild had an enormous impact on Israel's development during the repatriation waves in the late 19th and early 20th century, as he supported the foundation of many towns, settlements and projects.

  • Many people have contributed to the foundation of the state of Israel, and many sites tell us about the actions and the legacy of these people – Theodor Herzl, Joseph Trumpeldor, Ze'ev Jabotinsky, David Ben Gurion, Pinhas Rothenberg, Yigal Alon, Moshe Dayan and many others.

  • Many Rabbis and Tzadikim (righteous) are buried in Galilee, when every tomb has its own tradition, related to the story of the person buried in it.

  • Tiberias and Safed are two of the four holiest cities for Judaism, and many central Rabbis were active here, writing many of the most sacred Jewish scriptures (such as Talmud and Shulchan Aruch).
