"SHALOM" mit ToVA WaLD Boutique Travel & Events
Mit unserem Traveller Made® Partner "Tova Wald Boutique Travel & Events" zeigen wir Ihnen das heilige Land.
Wir empfehlen Ihnen eine Reise nach Israel nicht nur wegen der Kultur und der Historie, sondern auch wegen den vielen kleinen und großen Naturwundern.
Zum einen die pulsierende Metropole Tel Aviv direkt am Mittelmeer, zum anderen Jerusalem, die Wiege des Juden- und Christentums. Erleben Sie Jerusalem mit all seiner Geschichte bei einem Blick vom Ölberg auf den Felsendom, beim Gang über die Via Dolorosa, dem Leidensweg Jesu sowie beim Besuch der Klagemauer oder der Grabeskirche. Am See Genezareth sehen Sie weitere biblische Stätten wie die weiße Synagoge, Kapernaum oder den Berg der Seligpreisung. Ein Bad im Toten Meer mit dem unvergleichlichen Gefühl der Schwerelosigkeit darf natürlich nicht fehlen. In Tel Aviv genießen Sie Großstadtflair und kulinarische Highlights.
Kosmopolitisch und traditionell, jung und hip, Schmelztiegel der Kulturen und Sehnsuchtsort dreier Weltreligionen - das alles ist Israel.

Classical Israel Tour
selected by Tova Wald
Jerusalem, with a dramatic history dating back thousands of years, is a city that never ceases to change, evolve and amaze. It presents a different face for every era, a new countenance with every season. Indisputably one of the most beautiful and magical cities in the world, it is made only more entrancing by its ancient history and its many flavors and colors.
A visit to Jerusalem is a journey back in time, where every corner tells an ancient tale and almost every building records a landmark and historic event. Yet simultaneously, a visitor will encounter the bustle and activity of a vibrant modern city juxtaposed on the ruins of ancient civilizations.
Jerusalem’s Old City is surrounded by an impressive wall and contains four distinct quarters; the Jewish, Muslim, Christian and Armenian quarters. Here you will find the principal holy sites such as the Western Wall and Temple Mount, which are sacred to Jews; the Church of the Holy Sepulcher,
Via Dolorosa and other important pilgrimage destinations sacred to Christians; and the Dome of the Rock and Al-Aqsa Mosque, both important holy sites for Muslims.
Jerusalem by night is more private, intimate and magical, unlike during the day, when it is very busy and hot. The walk will start in Mt. Zion, King David's tomb, enter the old city walls through Zion gate, continue through the Jewish Quarter to the Kotel – The Western wall.
Meet your desert specialist guide and the 4 X 4 vehicles and drive in to the desert to MT. Montar, the highest mountain between Jerusalem and the Dead Sea, where in the past the Israelites used to attend a religious ceremony during Yom Kippur.
Continue towards the breathtaking view of the Marsaba Monastery, which was established in the fourth century.
Dead Sea and Judean Desert: Jerusalem lies on the border of desert land. To the west is lush green country, while to the east, in sharp contrast, is the arid Judean desert. The journey towards the Dead Sea takes visitors through the most intriguing and mysterious scenery. The busy, noisy urban environment is soon replaced by untamed desert panoramas, rocky hills and the characteristic brownish yellow of this spacious desert territory leading straight to the unbelievable blue of the Dead Sea, the lowest place on earth at 400 meters below sea level.
Masada: A rugged natural fortress of majestic beauty, in the Judean Desert overlooking the Dead Sea. Masada is the symbol of the fierce and last stand of Jewish patriots against the Roman army, in 73 A.D. The camps, fortifications and attack ramp that encircle the monument constitute the most complete Roman siege works surviving to the present day.
Set in the magnificently restored ancient Citadel first constructed 2,000 years ago by Herod the Great, the Tower of David Museum traces Jerusalem’s long and eventful history through state-of-the-art light projections utilizing advanced technologies. Canaanites and Hebrews, Greeks and Romans, Crusaders, Muslims, Turks, British, and Israelis are richly presented and seek harmony within the age-old walls.
Million Jews who perished in the Holocaust, and will include a visit to the Historical Museum,
The Valley of the Communities and the Children's Memorial.
Yad Vashem, the Holocaust Martyrs’ and Heroes’ Remembrance Authority was established in 1953 by an Act of the Knesset (Israel’s parliament) to commemorate the six million Jewish men, women and children murdered by the Nazis and their collaborators. The Museum also commemorates the heroism and fortitude of Jewish partisans and fighters in the Ghetto revolts, as well as the actions of the ‘Righteous Among the Nations’ (gentiles who saved the lives of Jews). This dramatic, informative and impressive Museum was designed by the world renowned Israeli-Canadian architect, Moshe Safdie.
The impressive Israel Museum was founded in 1965 and was renovated and expanded in 2010. The museum houses approximately 500,000 archaeological objects, items of fine art, Judaica and Jewish ethnography. Some of the objects on display date back to nearly one million years ago.

Capernaum (Kfar Nahum in Hebrew) is located on the northern shore of the Sea of Galilee about 16 kilometers from Tiberius. In biblical times, Capernaum was a fishing village ruled by the Kingdom of Judah, and is said to have been Jesus’ main base while ministering in the Galilee. This village was also home to the apostles Peter (also known as Simon Bar-Yonah), James, Andrew and John.
Jesus frequently taught at the ancient synagogue which was built on the foundations of a 1st century synagogue (John 6:59, Mark 1:21, Luke 4:33). The sermon on the bread of life (John 6:25-59) was also delivered by Jesus at this synagogue.
Around the 5th century AD, an octagonal Byzantine church was built in Capernaum. In 1990, Christian worshipers built a new church over the Byzantine church and over what was thought to have been St Peter’s house.
The Bustan Lavona (Lavona Orchard) is located on a hilltop overlooking the tranquil waters of Lake Kinneret (Sea of Galilee), the Old Synagogue, the Church of Capernaum (Kfar Nachum), and the western slopes of the Golan Heights. The orchard has more than 120 types of fruit trees from around the world, planted and collected with the cooperation of Ben Gurion University and the Volcani Institute for Agriculture.

Yet according to Christian legend, Jaffa was named after Noah's son, Japhet, who built the town after the Flood described in the Bible.
