Welcome to Israel!
We hope you had a good flight. You will be transferred from Ben Gurion airport to Jerusalem in a comfortable air-conditioned vehicle with plenty of room for luggage.
Once you are settled in you will meet you guide in your hotel lobby and start your tour! As today is a Friday we highly recommend going down to the Kottel to see Shabbat welcomed into the holy city. You will likely see Israelis from all walks of life, from soldiers to Hasids, dancing and singing in celebration. This will certainly be an experience to remember!
You will then enjoy a traditional Shabbat dinner in the home of a local Jewish family, getting to know your group and gaining an insider’s view of the meaning of Shabbat in a Jerusalem home. Food will be plenty and conversation is sure to be lively! Please note that the host family may also be entertaining other guests too.
