When planning their vacations, a lot of people think of going to popular destinations like Spain, Greece, and Thailand. There’s nothing wrong with visiting these countries but, if you want to explore a unique place and have one-of-a-kind adventures, why not spend your vacation in Israel? By doing so, you’ll have the chance to:
Go on an exciting Holy Land tour
Whether you’re Jewish, Christian, or Muslim, you probably consider Israel as one of the holiest lands in the world. So why not take a Holy Land tour and explore the sites that are deeply connected with religion and spirituality? You can go on a Jewish trip to Israel to see the Temple Mount (which is thought to be the location of the First Temple, where the Ark of the Covenant was housed). You can also visit the Western Wall or the Wailing Wall, where you can say your prayers and leave prayer notes in the cracks in the wall, as well as Mount Meron and the tomb of Maimonides.
If you’re a Muslim, make sure to visit the Al-Aqsa Mosque (which is one of the holiest sites in Islam) and the Dome of the Rock, both of which are located in Temple Mount. If you’re a Christian, choose a Holy Land tour that lets you see the Church of the Holy Sepulchre (which marks Jesus’s crucifixion and burial sites) and the Church of the Multiplication in Tabgha, where Jesus fed thousands of people with two fish and five loaves of bread.
Celebrate your child’s bar or bat mitzvah
There’s nothing wrong with having your child’s coming-of-age celebration at home, but it’s always better to have the bat mitzvah or bar mitzvah in Israel. This way, you can make the event more special and memorable and ensure that your child and all your loved ones will always remember this once-in-a-lifetime occasion. Don’t worry since organizing this event is easy, particularly if you get the help of a tour operator who specializes in bar and bat mitzvahs. With their assistance, you can have the celebration in a special venue (such as the Western Wall or an ancient synagogue) while ensuring that your family’s customs and traditions are observed.
Delight your taste buds with Israeli delicacies
Your trip to Jerusalem and other parts of the country won’t be complete without giving the Israeli cuisine a try. So, once you’ve completed your Holy Land tour and other adventures, take the time to sample traditional dishes, desserts, and drinks and tickle your taste buds with the unique blend of flavors and textures. You can opt to do these on your own but, to have the ultimate gastronomic experience, it’s better to book a culinary tour with a reliable tour operator. This way, you’ll get to enjoy a wide range of adventures, such as munching on traditional snacks while roaming around open-air markets and spending time (and eating fresh fruits and vegetables) in a peaceful and quiet farm.
Going on a Holy Land tour, celebrating bar/bat mitzvahs, enjoying unique and mouthwatering food — these are just some of the things you’ll enjoy when you visit Israel. So what are you waiting for? Start planning your fun, exciting, and memorable trip to Israel now!
