Tours of religions and beliefs and history

The Land of Israel unites the three great monotheistic religions:

Judaism, Christianity, Islam, along with other religions, denominations and beliefs that split from them. All together' they create a complex and interesting collage.

In all the years of my research and study, I have discovered that basically they all talk about the same basic values of kindness, love, honesty and compassion' while each has their own expression, in the way of their faith. The faith expressions have changed throughout history. There were times when the believers distanced themselves from the origins, like in the Crusader period.  some are trying to return to the origins, study them and perform adaptations for the current days.

The historic processes, The Jewish and Muslim mysticism, the intermingling of the Messianic Jews, and the many beliefs developed are fascinating subjects to explore, especially through meeting religious people and believers.

These trips open us up to getting to know the other, the different communities that make up this colorful collage in Israel, finding the common values to us all.

The variety is rich. There are tours that focus on a certain religion, a certain denomination, and some that combine the collage of religions.

Judaism – to travel with the Bible

Archeology in Israel gives us evidence of 4000 years of history. Traveling with the Bible is the thing that fascinates me the most - to see how through archaeology, the stories come to life in front of our eyes. From the days of King David in the beginning of Jerusalem (the City of David), through the biblical ruins that each have their own story, (Lachish, Azka, Megiddo, Gezer, Hatzor and more...) 

Wonderful Observation points on the areas where the events took place (Saul's battle in Gilboa, Joseph's story in Emek Dotan, the Ark of the Covenant journey in Beit Shemesh and more...)

The Second Temple period, Mishnah and Talmud. These where periods of great spiritual creation, massive site buildings.

For example, we can go up the drainage canal from the City of David of the First Temple period straight to the excavations of the Western Wall from the Second Temple, the Herodian Quarter, the seats of the priests and more...

We can walk along Herod's witty construction in Caesarea, Jerusalem, and the Herodian Masada....

We will travel in the Galilee and the Golan following the great rebellion such as Yodafat, Gamla, following the period of spiritual flourishing in the days of the Mishnah and the Talmud.

In the place of Rabbi Yehuda Hanasi's residence in Beit Shaarim and Tzipori, a multitude of synagogues that have survived in their beauty await our visit - Beit Alfa, Hamat Tiberias, Katzrin, Umm El Kuntir and more.

In the 16th century, Safed appears on the stage of history as a place of spiritual creation that is still felt in the alleys of the old city.

Across the country there are dozens of active synagogues whose stories are fascinating, special in their beauty and included in tours such as: the Tunisian synagogue in Acre, the synagogues in Safed (the Ari, Abuhav...), the synagogues in the Jewish Quarter (the Horva, the Sephardic synagogues...) special synagogues and less famous ones such as in Ein Hanitziv.


Paul described Christianity as a new shoot that came out of the ancient olive tree that symbolizes Judaism. Jesus was a strict Jew and from his way of life this brought his prophecy. Since the beginning of Christianity, it has gone through many paths and the tree was splited into dozens of branches - some thick (like the Catholics, the Greek Orthodox...) and some thin (like the Pentecostals, the Syrians...)

These divisions led to the development of different practices and theologies, different worship ceremonies and liturgies. 

Since the Land of Israel is the place of Jesus heritage, many denominations planted there roots here in different forms.

It is a fascinating world that brings us to travel the country special places. You can even experience their different holiday ceremonies.

Helena, Caesar Constantine's mother came to look for the places where Jesus stayed, taught and worked' and actually she is the one who developed the sacred geography. Many remains remain from the Byzantine period, and the most beautiful are found in the city of Nabatim in the Negev.

Some of the tour topics:

  • The life and work of Jesus, in the Galilee, the Kinorot valley, Kaser el Yehud and Jerusalem.

  • Monasticism: Nuns from the Judean Desert, followed by orders and monasteries throughout the country.

  • Tours that often combine a meeting and conversation with monks from the various streams to get to know them more closely.

  • Messianic Judaism: a denomination of Jews who also believe in Jesus. there are number of sites where you can stay and hear about their way of believing, in Jerusalem, Yad Hashemona and Jaffa.


Islam is a monotheistic religion based in its essence on full adherence to the teachings of Muhammad. Muhammad is considered by all Muslims as the most important and last ever prophet ("Seal of the Prophets").

The number of believers in Islam is estimated at over 20% of the world's population.

Even in Islam there are divisions into very different denominations that influenced the life in the Land of Israel.

To get to know Islam and Arab culture, you can take tours:

  • To Jerusalem includes a visit to the Temple Mount - a tour with an emphasis on history as well as current co-existence challenges and affairs.

  • Jaffa includes a visit at the "Bustan Bnei Avraham" - the Sufis who belong to the mystical stream of Islam or meeting inspiring women.

  • Ein Rafa - to get to know Islam from Western sources and other fascinating and inspiring meetings.

  • Meetings with the Bedouin community in the Galilee, hearing Jalila tell her personal story and the modern women like her in society today.

  • In the south, meetings with special women who own businesses such as Zeinab the ceramicist Meshgav Shalom, the wonderful story of the village of Dirijat and other special life stories.


The Druze religion began to take shape in the 11th century. The Druze are also called "Sons of Maruf" and "Almowahdon" - "Sons of the unique faith"

It is a secret religion and a closed committee that cannot be entered.

In Israel, the Druze mostly live in their Galilee villages, Carmel and the Golan. They are an integral part of the Israeli society collage. Their known hospitality is wonderful, and the food is special and most loved.

Tours can include: 

  • A visit to the holy places: Nabi Sablan, Nabi Shoab, Makam Ibrahim

  • A tour to the villages with their heart opening hospitality, meetings with interesting and special people. Villages like Dalit El Carmel, Paki'in, Yanoch - Jatt, Khorfeish and more.



The Circassians are originating from the north of the Caucasus.
In their own words they are called Adige, which in their language means - the noble man.

They have an ancient culture, and a special tradition. The Islam is their religion since the 19th century.

They came to the Middle East after the massacre of their people by the Russians, arrived here in 1878 and established the villages of Kama and Rihaniya.

The Circassians are known for their wonderful hospitality, and the special food: Haloz, the Circassian cheese and more.

Every trip becomes an exciting and enriching experience.
