The family track to Israel is a seven-day experience filled with diverse activities to satisfy everyone in the family. The trip will begin with a visit to Caesarea before heading to Tel Aviv. The next few days include a ‘Dialogue in the Dark’ experience at the Children’s Museum in Holon, Beth Hatefutsoth, followed by a visit to the Begin School in our sister city of Rosh Ha’Ayin. The journey continues toward Jerusalem with a tour of the Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream Factory, a visit to the Weizmann Institute of Science, and then the Clore Garden of Science. You and your family have the choice of a tour of Yad Vashem or a trip to the Jerusalem Biblical Zoo, followed by the Kotel and a beautiful Shabbat overlooking the Old City. We’ll finish off the experience with Masada, the Dead Sea, and the Ein Yael Living Museum before heading back to New Orleans!
