Your words. Not ours.

Gil Preuss

CEO, The Jewish Federation of Greater Washington Missions Israel , 2021

Thank you so much for the incredible work and partnership. The care and thoughtfulness at every step of the preparation and during the trip itself was unsurpassed. It was a true pleasure to partner with you in leading a mission just as group trips to Israel were opening up. I look forward to working with the whole Da’at team again in the near future.

Zach Briton

The Jewish Federation of Greater Washington Private Israel , 2021

Nice job to your team! Thanks for always making us look great! I wanted to thank you for recommending and introducing us to Da’at Travel. They have been fantastic to work with and flexible with the travel delays and changes we experienced. On the ground, the greeter they arranged to meet him at the airport, the COVID test appointments, etc. all went so smoothly and was such an immense help in navigating through his arrival.

Rabbi Andrew Vogel

Temple Sinai of Brookline, Massachusetts Congregational Israel , 2009

We had an excellent experience with Da'at. Every detail was taken care of, and every moment was meaningful and well cared for. Your help months ago in crafting the itinerary was truly excellent, and once we arrived in Israel, you and your staff were terrifically organized, personable, and very flexible. I'm grateful for the additional pieces you added once we arrived, including the Bedouin visit, which our group enjoyed a great deal. I would certainly recommend ARZA / Da'at to my colleagues, and plan to be in touch with you the next time we organize a synagogue trip to Israel.

Elisa Schindler Frankel

Stephen Wise Free Synagogue, New York Congregational Israel , 2014

From start to finish, our trip was an amazing and flawless experience. I have been traveling to Israel for 42 years. This was by far superior to any other visit in every way: organization and logistical execution, quality of content, breadth of sites visited, calibre of speakers, lodging, food, knowledge and passion of tour educators, and capability and warmth of bus drivers. Thank you for the trip of a lifetime -- the kind of trip to Israel that dreams are made of.

Rabbi Irvin M. Wise

Adath Israel Congregation, Cincinnati Congregational Israel , 2016

The trip was excellent, Da'at's staff was excellent, and all you did was excellent. I cannot thank you enough!

Mark Medin

Executive Vice President, UJA Federation of New York Missions Israel , 2013

I want to thank you very much for ensuring the success of our Mission. You committed your best to every aspect of the planning, and together with your terrific team executed the logistics very well. Please send my deepest appreciation to all of your colleagues – the hostesses, the tour educators, drivers, security guards and everyone else involved in behind the scenes and upfront roles during the Mission. I am particularly thankful for your ability to move so quickly to implement changes to the program and to stay on top of all of the little details.

Rabbi Benjamin Sharff

Reform Temple of Rockland, New York Congregational Israel , 2018

I have done one trip with ARZA World and I am about to do another. So far I have been very pleased. Part of our focus is on progressive Judaism in Israel, so they are an excellent resource.

Rabbi Jonathan Blake

Westchester Reform Temple, New York Congregational Germany , 2019

I am still “flying high” from the wonderful experience we had in and around Berlin this week. (I am also literally flying high - writing to you mid-flight on the way back.) Thank you for all that you did to create such a memorable trip!

Rabbi Hara Person

Chief Executive at Central Conference of American Rabbis Specialty Israel , 2020

The last days of the CCAR Art and Culture Trip were wonderful and profound. We heard incredible Persian music, had a fashion tour, heard from both Dan Feferman and former ambassador Dan Shapiro about the new “peace plan,” visited Bet Alliance, spent erev Shabbat with our Israeli colleagues at two different Reform congregations, learned from author Doris Rabinyan, visited a master of Armenian pottery, and ended with a great meal. It was a wonderful opportunity to get to know this group of colleagues and spouses, to reconnect with old friends, and to deepen our relationships to the Israel of today, the Israel behind the headlines, where real people are doing meaningful, important, and inspiring work. Thanks so much to Gilad Peled, Sarah Gordon, Donald Goor, Nimrod Shafran, Guy Millo and Sebastian. As always it was a pleasure to work with the great team from Da’at. להתראות- עד פעם הבא.

Lisa Horowitz

Executive Director, Temple De Hirsch Sinai, Seattle Specialty Czech Republic,Austria,Hungary , 2019

I’ve been on many such tours in my life and this was far and away the best. Ever.
