You COULD just write a check. You COULD just attend an IDF-themed gala. OR you could pack your bags, fly to Israel, and work arm-in-arm with Israeli soldiers. Sweat with them, laugh with them, support their work with yours, tell them why you are there, and show them that you are also all-in in supporting the State of Israel. And when they look at you and ask, “You paid to be here? You paid to come and help?” you can smile and say “yes.”Read More

Israel Insiders: Perfect Singles Trip to Israel
Have you dreamed of touring Israel but put it off because you didn't want to travel alone?
Gil Travel has the solution for you! Our Israel Insiders Tour allows individuals to explore Israel with a group of like-minded singles.
In Israel, there are growing numbers of single individuals and fewer couples than in years past. Israelis use the term “seeking” to describe individuals who are looking to start a relationship. Because so many singles love to travel, we have designed a program specifically for them. On the Israel Insiders Tour, scheduled for November 8-17, 2014, participants between the ages of 45 to 65 will meet the leaders of Israel’s high tech companies and start-ups, and spend time with a local journalist to learn about Israel’s present-day issues, while exploring the country’s cultural and historical sites. It's a perfect combination of mixing business with pleasure!Read More
Do I need to get a cell phone for my trip to Israel?
So you’re going to Israel and getting conflicting information about using a cell phone in Israel.

Some friends may have used their own phones and returned to outrageous charges or horror stories of being disconnected. Others may have rented phones or SIM cards, and found it confusing (it's not, I promise).Read More
