We are honored and blessed to have such amazing friends and family who are considering flying to Israel for our wedding. We realize that many of you will need help with planning flights, accomodation, and touring Israel in June.

The following are a few links to get you started. We suggest booking flights as soon as possible, as things can get quite pricey. We’ll be providing more information and suggestions on this page in the near future.  Please let us know if you have any questions or need help with your plans.

Attraction Recommendations

There are so many great things to see and do in Israel. You can start at the Tourism Ministry Site , Lonely Planet Israel or Time Out Israel (English Edition) but here are our favorites:

In Tel Aviv

  • Artist’s Market on Nachalat Binyamin – Open every Tuesday and Friday from around 10am. Great place to get gifts and just feel the buzz of the city. It is next to the ‘shuk’ (market) where you can get fresh produce.
  • Tel Aviv Port – lots of restaurants, bars and shops. There is a great farmer’s market on Friday’s in the northern part of the port.
  • Rothschild Boulevard – One of the most famous streets in Tel Aviv. Grab a coffee at one of the stands in the middle of the boulevard and explore the Bauhaus architecture.
  • Neve T’Zedek neighborhood – The oldest neighborhood in Tel Aviv.  The restaurant Suzanna is famous for its tapas.
  • Old Jaffa (Yaffo in Hebrew) – The old port and Shuk Hapispisim (the market) are the highlights. There are several great restaurants in the market area including Dr. Shakshuka or HaPoah. Just ask any local and she can point you in the right direction.
  • Rent bicycles and cycle along the paved route that stretches from North Tel Aviv to Bat Yam. You can find green bicycle return stations all over the city.
  • Tel Aviv has one of the most museums per capita in the world so explore many art galleries or famous museums, including the new wing at the Tel Aviv Museum of Art
