Rabbi Eitan meets your group in the Gush Etzion area or in Jerusalem for an hour long encounter including a lecture and a question and answer session. Small groups (10 or less) may be invited to the Rabbi’s home in Tekoa for coffee if the timing is right. Alternately, meetings can take place outdoors, or in the client’s hotel in Jerusalem. A brief tour of Tekoa including a short hike with a breathtaking view can be included in a two hour session.
Rabbi Eitan has more than ten years of experience as a highly sought after private guide, Orthodox rabbinic ordination, a degree in philosophy, as well as native, high level English. He has the background to bring Israel, Judaism, and the Bible alive for your group. He can also address burning questions most guides, and for that matter most rabbis, can’t or won’t.
