It’s the nightmare we all dream of. The privilege of taking your entire family to experience Israel.


Walk in our forefathers’ pathways, indulge in our culture’s delectables, and drive a hard bargain like a seasoned Sabra.


With all that comes exploring the sights (simplistic Yerushalmim), sounds (think Machne Yehuda), and smells (the land of milk and honey).


In Israel, everything is laced with history and mini Torah sessions. So how do you know which attractions are best for your family? 


We divided sights into two categories, fun family activities, and traditional historical landmarks.


Take a look below and find an experience best-suited for your family!


Please note: We do not endorse the kashrut of any specific eatery on this list.

One more thing, when planning your itinerary, bear in mind that on the first day or two, all everyone does is sleep. Take that into account before scheduling paid tours.
