Planning a trip to Israel! (Series introduction) 2

I’ve been writing a lot about traveling lately. (If you missed it, here are the links for the traveling with kids series. Check out part 1 (airplane travel), part 2 (your in-vehicle bag), part 3 (packing), part 4 (while you’re gone and making unpacking easy), part 5 (safety), and part 6 (away for Shabbat).

Traveling to Israel has a special place in our hearts, and in the hearts of many Jewish families. We returned late last night from a 2.5 week trip to Israel with the whole family: parents and 4 kids ranging from 2 to 9. We had a fantastic time. I did lots of pre-planning to make it easy: temporary cell phones, a short-term apartment, maps, books to read with the kids, activities to do (and avoid!) and more. I put a lot of work into making it a great trip, and now I’m going to share it with you!

Please let me know if you have any questions, and I’ll answer them to the best of my ability as we go. And stay tuned!

Part 1: Flights and Ground Transport

Part 2: Where to stay

Part 3: Logistics

      Hi Leah! I’m going to write this up in more detail, but we went with At Home In Israel: We had a few small issues, but they responded promptly, and we highly recommend them! They have a whole bunch of apartments in different areas and with different sizes. If you book, please use my referral code: AH3523. IyH, we’ll use them again next time we go! -Amital
