"Boker Tov" from Israel!

Written by

Good Morning or as we say in Israel “Boker Tov”!

It’s very early in Israel, but our families are well rested and anxious to start this most special day. Today the children will be Bar/Bat Mitzvah and all the families are buzzing with excitement. They've enjoyed a good night’s sleep at the luxurious Isrotel Dead Sea. Situated on the shores of the sea, the hotel is only a 10 minute drive to Masada. By staying overnight, we have eliminated the long drive from Jerusalem to be atop Masada before it’s too hot! After extensive touring in Jerusalem, the families have had a wonderful time "floating" in the Dead Sea and enjoying the scenery, the hotel and the mud!

The cable car is waiting to take our group to the top of this ancient fortress. The site of Jewish resistance against the invading Romans, Masada symbolizes the determination of the Jewish people to be free in their own land. The centuries old tradition of becoming a Bar/Bat Mitzvah is continued here on top of Masada in our very special morning service. The Rabbi is ready and the children are prepared to take their place as Jewish adults. Mazel Tov to Aaron, Emily, Joseph, Taylor, Jason, Kaden, Amanda & Sloan on your Bar/Bat Mitzvahs!

After breakfast at the hotel, it’s on to the resort city of Eilat for two days of fun and relaxation. Our families will have a fabulous yacht cruise with lunch and snorkeling on the calm clear waters of the Red Sea or some of them may choose to take our optional day trip to Petra, Jordan to see the ancient lost city of the Nabataeans. In their free time they can enjoy the Hilton Eilat Queen of Sheba's wonderful facilities or explore the beautiful beaches.

All Israel Discovery Tours include Eilat.  It is an awesome place and not to be missed.
