Shalom from Reuven
Dear friends, Shalom!  My name is Reuven and I have the privilege of being born and raised in the magical Holy City – Jerusalem!  I served for 3 years in an elite Israeli army combat unit and went on to major in biblical studies at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem.  This was followed by an M.A. in archaeology and two further years of  studies at the acclaimed Ben Zvi Institute, where I received my national Israel tour guide license.  My expertise is in history, biblical archaeology, and religion, and am fluent in three languages- English, French, and Hebrew.  I have held various teaching positions, and bring to my work years of professional experience organizing and guiding a wide range of tours for synagogues, churches, private family parties, high-tech businesses, youth organizations, and universities.

What is Israel for me?
Imagine the excitement of growing up in the footsteps of the great personages of the Bible- Abraham, Moses, King David, Isaiah, and Jesus – literally breathing thousands of years of biblical history.  I can’t wait to personally share my love of Israel and the Holy Land with you.  It’ll be an unforgettable experience of a lifetime.
