"Thank you so much for providing us with the most amazing Israel experience for Jacob's Bar Mitzvah. You were so easy to work with, and you worked so hard to make sure everything was perfect. Your team : tour guide, photographer, videographer, ....all went above and beyond our expectations. Everyone was so professional to work with. The venue and design team you suggested for the Bar Mitzvah and party as well was beyond beautiful and a was a perfect location. We could not have done it without you! Thanks for everything!!" -- Sharon Cohen, Chicago, IL
The trip was exceptionally meaningful. My son had an experience that connects him to his Israeli family and his people. I think it made a big impression on him that will last all his life. That was the primary goal and I feel it was realized. I was also happy to bring so many non-Jews to Israel for the first time and to witness their strong positive impressions. So all in all, it was an incredibly good experience that met my expectations. I suspect we’ll seek to duplicate the experience for my other son in three years. It all worked out fine and I truly appreciate your work and patience on our behalf. Beni Levin of Levin Travel Group was also indispensable and I will write him a note telling him so. I would happily recommend both of you to friends seeking a similar experience in the future. -- Dan Ripp, New York City
The bat mitzvah was great and we are so happy with what you did for us. And, as mentioned, we love Beni Levin (Tours and Travel Group). We'd be happy to be references for you both. Happy to also let people know about Elad Weinrib (DJ) as well. He was great too. -- Ron Meisler, Chicago

"It was amazing from the start. The day and evening were seamless and everything was perfect. I couldn't have asked for a nicer way to celebrate Noah's Bar mitzvah in Israel. I look forward to working with you again when we come for Rachel!!"-- Cortney Stark Cope, Chicago, IL

"We are now back at home after a Bar Mitzvah trip to Israel that was better than Kamron, Mary, and I had even hoped for. The whole trip was wonderful, filled with family and interesting things seen and done, and the Bar Mitzvah itself was absolutely perfect.  Kamron did an amazing job and it was as great an experience for him as it possibly could have been. Thank you Pamela, for setting everything in motion and then pulling it all together.  The event was perfectly planned and executed, and we would not have changed a thing. You came into our family's life briefly, but played an incredibly important role in it, for which we will always be grateful.  It was a pleasure and honor to meet and work with you." -- Jacob Farber, Bethesda, MD

"Planning my son's Bar Mitzvah was easy and it was more beautiful than I could have imagined, thanks to Celebrations in Israel. What makes Celebrations in Israel unique is their understanding of American standards and service expectations, and their ability to apply them in Israel.  I had feet on the ground in Israel, finding me the best of what is possible there, suited to my taste, for my son's Bar Mitzvah. The food, decor, flowers, and photography were exactly what we wanted and the entire scene was absolutely breathtaking. I will cherish the memories of the entire experience for the rest of my life."  -- Denise Hamburger, Chicago, IL

"We appreciate all of the effort you put in to make the event a success. And it was a success. The synagogue was a beautiful and unique setting for the service, and the restaurant--both food and ambience--was excellent.  Celebrations in Israel was a pleasure to deal with -- very professional, pleasant and thorough. Our memories of the day and event are wonderful. Thanks for all of your help making Mikaela's day unique and special." -- Mimi Ritchie, Glencoe, IL
Thank you for everything. It all turned out beautifully, really. You were wonderful to work with and I wish you well on your party planning business. -- Bar Mitzvah Mom, Jerusalem
