I recently took my two oldest sons, ages 10 and 8, on a trip to Israel and hired Rabbi Eitan Levy as our tour guide. We had a really enjoyable time. Rabbi Eitan prepared the itinerary and took care of arranging tours beforehand when necessary. He provided us transportation in his new clean car. Rabbi Eitan was very knowledgable about all the places he brought us to, providing an historic overview complete with sources from the Bible as well current scholarly works- he really made the past to come life! One of the best qualifications of Rabbi Eitan is his ability to prepare an itinerary that keeps kids engaged as well as explaining the history at their level; this made the experience very meaningful for my two oldest sons. At the same time, I enjoyed conversing with and learning from Rabbi Eitan, as well. In addition, his flexibility and willingness to accomodate our needs regarding schedule changes was very admirable, and he was very helpful in making sure that my older son’s food allergies were accomodated when we ate out. Thank you Rabbi Eitan, for providing us with memories that we will not forget; my sons and I continue to talk and reminisce about our trip almost a year later.
In a single day, our large family experienced three aspects of Israel’s complex heritage: The desert site when Jeremiah pronounced his prophecies, the excavated settlement and the caves where the Dead Sea Scrolls were discovered, and the Dead Sea. Eitan was a fabulous leader and guide, dramatically proclaiming the words of Jeremiah, pondering the extremes of the Essene sect, and finding a great place for us, our kids and our grandkids to experience the astonishing buoyancy of the water and the equally astonishing enthusiasm of the other visitors for the salt-infused mud of the seabed. Our group ranged from 2 years to 72 years old, and we all left delighted with Eitan’s planning, knowledge and patience.
Rabbi Eitan took our family on a fabulous day trip through the Gush Etzion area. He tailored the trip perfectly to our requests for adventure, active hiking, a good place for lunch, a little shopping, a visit to the yeshiva for our son, and a final adventure at the Zip LIne! We had a truly full day! All our kids (ages 10-17) came home happy and tired. We would highly recommend Rabbi Eitan and would happily tour with him again!
