What People are Saying

Tour Guide Aaron was great. WE wished we booked him for more days than we did. He took us to the “inside” of Israel and the “inside” of the Tanach. Clearly depicted stories from the prophets and showed us many interesting things. Highly recommend!!!… Read More

To interest an 11 and 14 year old from America and make the sites/sights come alive is not an easy task. Aaron Shaffier did an amazing job of it. Thanks much for making my grandson’s trip so memorable… Read More

“Jacob awoke from his sleep and said: Surely God is in this place and I did not know” (Genesis 28:16). Jacob had been a man of the tents, a student of Torah, and descendant of the greats Abraham and Isaac. Surely he had been taught that G-d is everything and no place is devoid of Him.

It is one thing to study a concept in a book. However, It is another thing to integrate the concept in our hearts. Oftentimes we must travel the world over before having a profound moment where the concept truly hits us. We see what had been spoken about all along but we just came to truly understand.

G-d is One in all four directions, above, and below. Hence, Jacob names the place of this realization “Home of El (G-d).” El is 31 in numerology. When we recall how G-d/El is one in all six directions (31x6) we come to His “place” (186). That place being Jerusalem where the stones remind us at every turn that there is something deeper lurking behind the material world we see - a profound Oneness.
Shalom from Jerusalem!

Thou shalt arise, and have mercy upon Zion: for the time to favor her, yea, the set time, is come.
For thy servants take pleasure in her stones, and favor the dust thereof.

Jerusalem this morning.
I'm privileged to guide tours in Jerusalem regularly, but it never gets old. For thousands of years my ancestors only dreamed of stepping within these gates and now I am here!

Hand made Armenian pottery today in Jerusalem.
This secret cable car across the Ben Hinnom valley was used during the War of Independence to supply a pocket of fighters on the other side. The cable was kept low so the Jordanians wouldn't discover it. On in the middle of the night was it tightened to send in supplies and to send the wounded out.
