I wanted to thank you for your truly excellent tours that you have provided over the years to my family. We have used your services several times over the past 2 years. We have toured in and around Jerusalem, as well as extensive overnight trips to the Northern parts of Israel and the Southern areas as well. We have traveled with you and our young children in a small group as well as having you guide us in larger extended-family group. Each and every time, our experience has been the same. Your guidance has been insightful, well planned, patient (especially with the younger members of our groups) and, overall, extremely enjoyable. Whether it was hiking and jeeping through the Judean Desert, splashing in the springs of the Galil, exploring ancient cities, riding camelback or climbing mountains, you have helped create unique and memorable experiences for myself and our children. Your keen knowledge of ancient history, geology and topography adds to the experience. The kids constantly refer to our guided trips when learning in school or studying the Parsha. You have succeeded in bringing the stories to life so that they can visualize what they are actually studying in yeshiva many months after we returned home from our trips. We can’t wait until our next visit to Israel and see what creative trips you have in planned. Many thanks and continued success!

I am so sorry it took me so long to write this letter. I cannot thank you enough for the most spectacular, informative and unbelievable time we had with you. I really believe you out did yourself and had the patience of a (I cannot say saint) blessed man. I cannot stop telling everyone here how wonderful your touring and again your knowledge of Israel is. You really made our trip a trip of a lifetime. This is my fifth time in Israel and I learned so much. Irwin, as you know, was even singing you praise. He does send his regards and I will send you guests as soon as they ask me for your name. Once again, THANK YOU.

Thank you much for touring with us in Jerusalem. These 2 days with you have been so meaningful. You showed us so many interesting sights and told us so many bible stories… You really connected with this incredible city. My kids loved being with you… Lily said “I think Moshe is like my uncle and Jerusalem was my favourite part of the trip so far”.
Thanks again for everything. Your story about how you made Aliya was inspiring and we wish you and your family good health and happiness. Warmest regards and keep in touch!

Now that we are back home, I wanted to send you a note about our trip.
Adina and I were thrilled with the three days we spent with you in and around Jerusalem. It is clear that you have vast knowledge, but many people know a lot of Israel’s history. What made the experience special was your manner and attitude (not to mention the babysitting and sheirut referrals).
You were terrific with the kids. Moshe is often reluctant to communicate, even with people he has known his whole life. You were able to engage him from the first stop overlooking Jerusalem all the way through the Bar Kochba caves and the drive back to the hotel three days later.
You also were prepared to be an extra pair of hands. I don’t have to tell you what it is like to manage four young children. When a stroller needed to be shlepped up the stairs, you didn’t hesitate to grab it.
You held the baby, took Avi’s hand or sat in the back of the van with Moshe and Etan. To me, that was above and beyond the call of duty and made the trip easier and more enjoyable for everyone.
In the end, we had a terrific time and you were a major reason. We will look forward to getting together with you again on our next trip.

I can’t tell you how much I enjoyed being under your tutelage as we explored portions of your homeland. Your pace was just right, and your manner in imparting knowledge was both informative and enjoyable. Above all else, I must say that you have a passion for Israel. I have shared your story with many of my friends in your journey of discovery toward committing to moving your family half way around the world. I admire your determination; your conviction is most evident. God must be smiling.
THE KIDS STILL TALK ABOUT OUR TOUR ALL THE TIME, ACTUALLY JUST LAST WEEK AVIGDOR BROUGHT HOME FROM HIS SCHOOL LIBRARY “THE LITTLE MIDRASH SAYS” ON NAVI AND THE STORY OF DAVID AND GOLIAS WAS IN IT. THEY WERE ALL SO EXCITED TO READ IT AND RETELL THE STORY ON THEIR OWN!
SRULI IT DOESN’T GO BY A MONTH WITHOUT MY CHILDREN SAYING SOMETHING LIKE SRULI TOLD US THAT WHEN WE WENT TOURING WITH HIM. STILL HAVE GREAT MEMORIES.
THANKS AGAIN FOR THE UNFORGETTABLE TOUR!!
