This summer I took a group to Israel for the first time.  As a young Rabbi with limited recourses I was concerned that the demands of planning and coordinating a trip would be too much for me, and to expensive for my community during a recession. Shalom Stark at Shalom Israel Tours laid my fears […]

Shalom Stark made our visit to Israel the most memorable trip we have taken. The tour guides he works with are extremely knowledgeable, very personable and passionate people. Shalom was efficient and responsive to our individual needs (because we were traveling with a 10 month old baby). Shalom was always accessible to us during our entire trip.  He is very […]

From the moment we arrived everything was taken care of.  We had a private taxi from the Airport to Jerusalem.  We met Shalom there the first night. I am not sure if you have talked to him yet, but he was exceptionally pleasant and helpful even before I left, answering all questions that this first timer had!   We saw […]

Western Wall Bar Mitzvah

July 4th 2011

Going Back to the Source; a Western Wall Bar Mitzvah The question is why? Why would you go back to the destruction of the First and Second Temple in order to celebrate your son’s  bar mitzvah, to celebrate that interesting duality of both freedom and responsibility that he acquires at such a young age? The […]

Israel Bar & Bat Mitzvah in Neot Kedumim

A Natural Biblical Landscape Bar Mitzvah Some people like to celebrate their Bar/Bat Mitzvah in the center of town, at some nearby hotel, at the Western wall, or in their family’s synagogue.

As we were deciding on a tour, we began contacting various operators.  When we contacted Shalom Stark, we learned not only that he is really in Israel, but that he is originally from Ohio.  Since we were from Ohio, we asked about his Ohio ties.  We were thrilled (Jewish Geography now) that he worked with several […]
